What did you like most about The Great Ideas of Philosophy, 2nd Edition?

A great intro to philosophy for people who haven't studied it before (like me). Goes through a lot of history and how it relates to present day thinkers, which is very enlightening.

Narrator is excellent; very thoughtful explanations and demonstrates different sides of philosophical arguments.

Really enjoyable reading.

What made the experience of listening to Exploring Metaphysics the most enjoyable?

Highly entertaining and informative. The narrator has a great sense of humour and explains all the mind-bending topics with great clarity. I have listened to some of the chapters many times and still love it.
Will read again.

Helpful and clear

Something every HR professional and hiring manager should read. Gives a clear and intelligent explanation of the difference between influence and persuasion. Enjoyable and easy listen.

Too annoying to finish

This book gives an entry-level explanation of how employees in the knowledge industry work. I think the modern executive (who this book is supposedly aimed at) would struggle to find any new or valuable information here.
The book also provides pre-canned
tweets that you are welcome to copy verbatim and tweet to your employees to inspire them.

And that tells you everything you need to know.
