Ringworld (also available at Audible) is fantastic Sci Fi. The sequel to it, Ringworld Engineers is also good (not available at Audible), but beyond that, there is just a lot of the same stuff. Bad Protectors killing each other over--and over--and over. Still, the narrator was decent and the story was pretty good if you love the Ringworld.
If you can get beyond the cassette quality recording, the content is excellent. This book is a repository of wisdom about life and is guaranteed to get you thinking. The book is divided into chapters about the important things in life. It also has several exercises and great advice. This book has hundreds of suggestions--not one single piece of advice. If you try to read this book looking for one message, you won't find a magic key or trick to life. Life isn't that way any how. Read it, enjoy it and I'm sure you'll find things in it you've enjoyed as much as I have.
I first read Niven through this audio book. I don't normally reread books, but this one I've read a few times. It is genius in structure and characters. It's only down-side are that there are a few slow times in the book, but they are greatly outweighed by the story itself.
