More About the Author

Originally from Binghamton, New York, David Stone is a New York City based writer of novels, nonfiction books, online content on several platforms as well as a hard copy journalist and reviewer.

He is the author of the Travels With George series of cat adventure and travel books that are illustrated by his wife, cat artist Deborah Julian.

"My novels spring from a backdrop of the revolutionary Sixties, when the sleepy Post War American conformity and contentment was blown apart from more angles than you can count - civil rights, Vietnam, modern art, beats, hippies and the counterculture. My main character, Peter McCarthy, had his most formative experiences in the Sixties. But then, the energetic decade fell into the disillusion of the Seventies. Peter navigates his way through and beyond."

Nonfiction:

"I don't know how to explain my nonfiction books. I never expected to write one, let alone two, but there they were. I had to type them out and put them between covers. These were two of the most surprising, exhilarating experiences I've ever had.

The Cat Books

"I'm lucky to be married to an artist who loves travel and cats as much as I do. I managed to recruit her to make my stories of George and Billy's travels come alive in full color (often funny) illustrations."

This is such a thought-provoking book. A million different things that David Stone mentions in this book quickly became a million more as I began to notice and appreciate many things I hadn't really thought about before. This book was the answer to a prayer that I had. That of finding a way to really get in touch with the Source within me. I remember being a very happy little girl. Somewhere along the way I lost the ability to see the overwhelming beauty and joy that is all around. My desire to live a prosperous life and reconnect myself to the childlike joy I once had led me directly to this book. I highly recommend it to anyone who would like more happiness and more peace in their life. I am looking forward to more meditations from the World's Happiest Man.

Format: Paperback
David Stone promotes meditation as method to increase self awareness and enjoyment of life. One can tell from this book it has clearly worked well for him. This current book is also a thought-provoking collection of essays or meditations on a wide-range of topics. Stone's divers life experiences and variety of interests in the arts and sciences provide a rich and learned background to form his views and philosophy. In many ways this book is a love story-a love of life, cats, pursuit of knowledge and life in general. Read. Enjoy. Think.

Good thoughts but boring read. Overly long paragraphs and thoughts were not laid out in a flowing manner. Lots of books have a tough time holding my attention because I do get bored quickly. I'll try to finish this but it's on the back burner until I finish the more interesting ones.
