The Tao of Mia and Leo
by Jeffra Nicholson
Inspirational book about the author's two cats, Mia and Leo, and how they helped her through life's ups, downs and all-arounds.
Cute book of short inspirational stories. In each short chapter the author focuses on an issue, i.e. asking for what you want, the art of dining, admitting your mistakes, self-acceptance, learning to enjoy your own company, etc., and tells how she learned from her cats how to handle those areas of her life.
At first I was skeptical about what a cat could teach someone about life, but Nicholson did a great job writing the book, relating the closely observed actions of her cats in thoughtful detail and providing inspiration to the reader. I enjoyed reading about her many work-related moves and how her faithful friends were there to help her get through all the stressors involved.
The only disappointment I had was the lack of pictures of her beloved kitties! There weren't any except for the cover picture. I felt a little cheated because of that :) Otherwise, the book was a joy to read.
