Awesome!!

I am so happy to see of all these great authors (in one book!!) from our past when enlightening knowledge was printed and shared with the public that was hidden or shunned for thousands of years. No modern teachers reveal the fundamental truths that these authors taught their generation. These authors have hundreds of texts maybe thousands to follow up with. This material has truly changed my life and continues to guide me. I cant begin to say how much I appreciate the narrator and author of this masterful collection.
Thank You God bless

Can’t believe I made it through

Wow. The information and paper selection was great but the readers are horrible. I really thought I couldn’t make it through the whole thing in fact I had to finish in three parts which is never the case for me. The woman is slightly more enjoyable than the man but both are some of the driest readers I’ve hear.

Lots of information - but boring as hell

There are some interesting parts and and I don't regret having it, but man they must have found the most un-interesting people to read these essays...I can't listen very long or I feel like I have adhd in thinking about everything else that may be going on in the world.

Terrible narrator

The voice of the individual reading this book is monotonous, has no cadence .... it makes it extremely difficult to follow the ideas on this book .
I stopped listening.

Good info but not thw best narrators

The information is good but it's a struggle to listen to Strader for this long. I definitely won't buy another book with him as a narrator.

appears to be narrated by Agent Smith (Matrix).

Very good listen, probably needs a few attempts to fully understand what is being shared
