Bob Fever has swept the globe, with A Street Cat Named Bob vaulting its way to #7 on The New York Times bestseller list in its first week on sale. With rights sold to 27 countries around the globe and a top spot on the British bestseller list for more than a year, this book has been a smashing success around the world. Now, James Bowen and Bob are back in The World According to Bob --a touching and true sequel about one man and the cat that changed his life.

As James struggles to adjust to his transformation from street musician to international celebrity, Bob is at his side, providing moments of intelligence, bravery, and humor and opening his human friend's eyes to important truths about friendship, loyalty, trust - and the meaning of happiness. In the continuing tale of their life together, James shows the many ways in which Bob has been his protector and guardian angel through times of illness, hardship, even life-threatening danger. As they high-five together for their crowds of admirers, James knows that the tricks he's taught Bob are nothing compared to the lessons he's learnt from his street-wise cat.

Readers who fell in love with Dewey and Marley, as well as the many fans who read A Street Cat Named Bob , will be eager to read the next chapters in the life of James and Bob.

A fair and good follow-up to A Street Cat Named Bob. Their remarkable story together continues. Quite the inspiring story. This sequel and the first book formed the basis for the movie.

Interesting at many levels, the human animal bond, street life and the good and bad in human behaviour, struggles with addiction. An easy read, a real pleasure.

Writing style is pretty bad in my opinion, but the story is engaging.

Bob the cat has given his human companion James a totally new lease on life, appreciation for the power of love, and an increased interest in how he can reach out to others, with Bob as the inspiration. James has come such a long way in his journey, since the first book he wrote about his life with Bob, and it was a joy to read about how so many others have come to know and love his cat Bob

The second installment about a man and his cat. Simply written, James Bowen gives us more stories and lessons he learned from his cat Bob.

More importantly, he gives us insight into what it's like to be homeless.

He says, "People don't understand that the lack of self-esteem and general hopelessness you feel when you are homeless.."

A wonderful tale about faith, hope, and love.

Not quite as gripping as the first book, this is still a lovely sequel that will warm your heart while answering the question, "What happened next?" I hope further adventures of James and Bob are forthcoming.

This book is as good as the first one. Such a heartwarming story!

This book shows the amazing benefit of owning a pet in a real life situation.

This is another sweet and touching book by James Bowen about his experiences with Bob. I loved both of his honest and inspirational books. Bob is awesome and this highlights the real benefits of animal therapy.

loved this book, James is honest about the bad decisions and choices he has made in his life and credits Bob with giving him the strength and courage to turn his life around. There is talk of a possible movie deal and I would definitely go see it. This a really inspirational read and going to YouTube to watch the interviews mentioned is really fun.
