Learn how to persuade cats - the world´s most skeptical and cautious negotiators - with this primer on rhetoric and argument from the New York Times best-selling author of Thank You for Arguing! Cats are skilled manipulators who can talk you into just about anything without a single word. They can get you to drop whatever you´re doing and play with them. They can make you serve their dinner way ahead of schedule. They can get you to sit down right this instant and provide a lap. On the other hand, try getting a cat to do what you want.... While it´s hard, persuading a cat is possible. And after that, persuading humans becomes a breeze, and that is what you will learn in this audiobook. How to Argue with a Cat will teach you how to: Hold an intelligent conversation - one of the few things easier to do with a cat than a human. Argue logically, even if your opponent is furry and irrational. Hack up a fallacy (the hairball of logic). Make your body do the talking (cats are very good at this). Master decorum: the art of fitting in with cats, venture capitalists, or humans. Earn any creature´s respect and loyalty. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Heinrichs.

This book contains information you need that will help you to choose the right cat for you and your family. The question of whether or not a cat´s love is real might seem ridiculous to those who do not own cats. Dogs might claim the title of man´s best friend, but everyone who has lived with cats knows they´re simply too awesome to want to be friends with. Some might argue, however, that those who own cats apply human characteristics to non-human entities. Well, those who argue that all animals take care of their young ones just because of instinct have obviously not spent time with a cat. This book has helpful information about cats, together with just about everything you might want to know to help you choose the right cat for you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Troy W. Hudson.

Cat´s Cradle is Kurt Vonnegut´s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet´s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist; a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer; and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat´s Cradle is one of this century´s most important works...and Vonnegut at his very best. 1. Language: English.
