Having read Sapiens I wondered whether I needed this. I thought it might be a bit repetitive. But this is a much vaster story. Beautifully written and read. I recommend you buy the book at the same time.

So good! I'll have to buy a hard copy to read in absorb it more.

A great tale well told.

Amazing to think this was written almost 3000 years ago. Even translated it seems a work of art. The reading was excellent with a very pleasing voice.

Excellent messages from the Upanishads

This is really a dissertation on the teachings of the Upanishads. It doesn't reproduce the Upanishads to any degree but passes on the messages beautifully.

Always wanted to enter the Gita. I couldn't have expected a more enjoyable introduction. Only trouble is the last two hours plus of the audio is a repeat of the beginning. Is that symbolic? ;-)

Fascinating enough to buy and filled with interesting information which will help us to understand our close relationship with everyone and everything. A bit laboured and repetitive at times and given to occasional, unnecessary atheist pronouncements.

You don't have to agree with everything but you will value the inherited wisdom. Well worth listening to someone who has devoted his life to the quest for meaning.

Covering interesting historical, scientific and philosophical matters, this is a very useful book for believers and non. You don't have to accept everything said to obtain great value.

I don't think I have enjoyed the reading of a book so much. I kept thinking Jung was speaking. Hard to agree with Jung in all things but he was remarkable and his thoughts should challenge us all. Great to gain a more personal insight.
