"worst narration imaginable"
the narrator pronounces his S's with such a piercing whistle that it was intolerable. I tried to force myself to listen to it anyway but just could not do so. The content of the book sounded promising but I couldn't get past the second chapter due to this irritating assault on the ears. I will likely end up buying the Kindle version and reading it. the only reason for the low overall rating of 3 is because the audio version was not usable to me.
I had no real substantial expectation of this book but I decided to get it and listen to it anyway. I found it to be a great contextualization of the Stoic philosophers and I'll likely give it another listen through after listening to some of the Stoics' work. Excellent content and presentation. The final section with the author's thoughts were also helpful, even giving actionable tips for starting a personal meditation practice.
"Great introduction to philosophy"
This book is a great introduction to philosophy. There are several books that attempt to introduce stoicism but miss the mark. After reading this book you will have a great understanding to the greek schools of thought and feel much more comfortable diving deeper in philosophy.
"Great Intro to a Great Way of Thought"
Great quotes from the masters of Stoicism. I'll be thinking about this book for a long time.
The narration is unbearable. The piercing "S" whistle sounds makes this audio book horrible. I am disappointed and wish I could get my money back to get the regular kindle version.
"Theres a lot of whistles"
I think i am not.
I didn't listen
Surelly not, there are a lot of whistles it's make the book hard to listen
"Fairly helpful in understanding stoic concepts"
I enjoyed a more simple approach to the subject and in particular the section on the history of stoicism. The narration is a bit rushed at times which means I had to repeat portions quit a number of times. Over all the book has value in helping one's understanding of the subject.
The content seems good but is very difficult to listen to because the narrator whistles when speaking. It's very distracting and annoying
"awesome. I really enjoyed it"
loved it. It was easy to follow along. The topic is a very interesting one.
"You owe it to yourself to listen to this book"
Such a great book for any stoic not just beginners. I recommend it to anyone looking to try stoicism or to refresh your memory.
"A great introduction and easy to absorb."
I was looking for an accessible and non-technical introduction and found it here. Very informative and highly recommended.
