A scruffy and irascible Maltese terrier, Monty was just like any other dog, one who enjoyed barking at pugs and sniffing at trees. But after yet another dramatic confrontation with the local Rottweiler, Anthony McGowan realizes it's high time he and Monty had a chat about what makes him a good or a bad dog. In this entertaining take on morality and ethics, McGowan takes a hilarious and enlightening jaunt through the major debates of philosophy. Will Kant convince Monty to stop stealing cheesecake? How long will they put up with Socrates poking holes in every argument?
"Witty, brilliant and irreverent, McGowan explains nothing less than the meaning of life—to his dog. If only we were all as lucky as Monty to go for long walks with the author."—Peter Frankopan
