This book was my first attempt at studying philosophy since college. I found the book easy to listen to, enjoyable and enlightening. The author doesn't waste time arguing with other interpretations, but rather gives a straigtforward easy to understand interpretation of each philosopher discussed. Since listening to this book I have read several other intros to philosophy, none with the clarity and focus of this book. The narrator was excellent as well.
This is one of the best, if not the best, title I have listened to on Audible. The voice of the central character seemed very authentic to me, as she described both the external conflicts going on in Liberia and the heartrending internal conflicts and contradictions going on inside of her. In addition, Mary Beth Hurt does an amazing job with the narration!
The narration is so good I almost want to get into the car just to listen to it. The narrator constantly changes his voice to match the scene. My wife read the book and I keep trying to convince her that it is so good on audio, she should listen to it as well. The story is engaging and easy to follow. The characters are convincing and the historical period described is really brought to life.
