About the Book

Gotham Chopra considers himself a pretty average guy, but his childhood wasn't quite so average. Growing up, he was exposed to the deepest reservoirs of knowledge that his famous father, Deepak, could find; his childhood was part spiritual, part scientific, and totally unique. Now a newly minted father himself, he's contemplating the influences he wants to draw on for his own son. The first was his father. The second was unexpected: his dogs. The Chopra dogs taught the family about curiosity and wisdom, open-mindedness and passion, not to mention loyalty and pig's ears. Recently, father and son had an opportunity for male bonding in a series of walks with a nervous dog and an exuberant toddler. They soon realized the qualities they observe and admire most in their pets are values we humans would do well to nurture within ourselves.--From publisher description.
