    Durant lucidly describes the philosophical systems of such world-famous “monarchs of the mind” as Plato, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Spinoza, Kant, Voltaire, and Nietzsche. Along with their ideas, he offers their flesh-and-blood biographies, placing their thoughts within their own time and place and elucidating their influence on our modern intellectual heritage. This book is packed with wisdom and wit.

    Story

    This was a delight, (as much as that is possible for Schopenhauer.) There are wide gaps between philosophers, but Durant does such a good job of distilling the lives and thoughts of the ones he includes that it is a very worthwhile listen. The navel gazers come alive as men and Durant includes an abstract of the man's philosophy and then a section of criticism. I found it a very good introduction to the study of Western thought. Also, I'm glad that my opinion of Aristotle is not unique to me.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    This series is riveting. I listened to Hunger Games and couldn't wait to dive into Catching Fire. However, I found that this narrator didn't present the text in a convincing way and sometimes found her distracting. So I consumed the rest of the series the old fashioned way,...on my Kindle :)
