Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0759626731, Paperback)

Misfortune and injustice are parts of life, but that doesn't mean we have to be cynical! In Cats Don't Do Geometry, humorist and poet Carl Anderson pokes fun at much of today's prevailing wisdom and presents some alternative ways of looking at things. It all begins with a study of cats and other fuzzy friends and how our relationships with them can improve our lives immensely. Anderson worked in the bureaucratic federal government system for over thirty years, which gave him plenty of time to observe human behavior-good and bad. Much of his wisdom spawned from this, including the benefits of hypocrisy, belief or disbelief in God, and even how to drive safely and with less stress. Most importantly, though, Anderson reminds us to keep cracking jokes, no matter what life throws our way. Although there is much to be skeptical about, we need to overcome cynicism and negativity in order to achieve our higher purpose. Life is meant to be lived well, even when we have unexpected houseguests or when our underwear doesn't fit. Cuddle up with a loved one-including furry friends-and turn sarcasm into a smile.
