Publisher's Summary

Gotham Chopra considers himself a pretty average guy. He devours pizza, lives and dies by his hometown teams, and watches Kung Fu Panda with his son - daily. But his childhood wasn’t quite so average. Growing up, Gotham 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 no surprise: his father. The second was unexpected: his dogs.

From Nicholas, the blaze of energy and anarchy who turned the family upside down, to Cleo, a rescue mutt with food issues, the Chopra dogs taught the family about curiosity and wisdom, open-mindedness and passion, not to mention loyalty and pig’s ears. But what else, Gotham wondered? And how did these lessons compare to the ones that Deepak himself imparted?

Gotham would soon find out. When his mother took an unexpected trip to India and left instructions to look after Papa, father and son have an opportunity for male bonding on a big scale. That this bonding takes place on their daily walks seems almost natural. After all, Gotham also had in his care a nervous dog and an exuberant toddler, both with an insatiable need for exercise and exploration. So Gotham and Deepak walk and talk, discussing the laughs and licks that come with having a dog, along with the contradictions, complexities, and consequences of having children. They soon realize the qualities they observe and admire most in their pets are values we humans would do well to nurture within ourselves. They discover that our best friends have a lot to teach us.

Gotham and Deepak’s message may seem simple, but therein lies its brilliance. Heartfelt, endearing, and above all down to earth, Walking Wisdom offers readers both enlightenment and comfort, with a little bit of mayhem thrown in for good measure.

Fun and insightful!

Well written and well spoken, fun information about dogs and their family.
Interesting insight into the well known guru, his family and their relationship with a sweet little dog.
I'd listen to it again and would referred it to friends. Affectionate and warm, like a healthy, happy pup!
