    Alain de Botton has performed a stunning feat: He has transformed arcane philosophy into something accessible and entertaining, useful and kind. Drawing on the work of six of the world's most brilliant thinkers, de Botton has arranged a panoply of wisdom to guide us through our most common problems.

    Austin says: "Cheering, empathic, helpful"
    "Intelligent Discourse for the Dissapointed"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Consolations of Philosophy to be better than the print version?

    I do not own the Print Version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I was very partial to the story of the death of Seneca. His pessimistic philosophy, when fully understood, kind of works in the opposite direction, making you value each and every day. I loved that.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It has very distinct chapter that you can spread over a good weekend, in 2 hour chunks.
