Enjoyable

This book was okay - I was hoping for something a little more in-depth and then I realised that Pythagoras existed a long time before Christ and there are little records available, although it appears that Pythagoras went against the establishment and thus was persecuted for speaking the truth..... a common theme throughout history......

Well written. Well narrated.

The book is precise, without needless detail. The narrator is good, being clear, with a favorable voice.

Bite size introduction to Pythagoras

Includes enough information to spark my interest into further study of Pythagoras and his philosophies. Having never read anything about him before, this was a very good introduction, providing basic information about his birth, life, ideas and advice. I recommend for the novice.
