(P)1993 by Blackstone Audiobooks
The book by A.E. Taylor is worth the listen. However the narration leaves a little to be desired.
In the first hour of this audiobook the narrator stumbles over a few words. At one point an airplane flies overhead which is clearly discernible on the recording. The narration also either has an echo or the recording took place where there was a crowd in close proximity.
Again the material of the book is top-shelf but the narration could have been better.

of the historical Socrates and his philosophy. Using mainly the accounts of Aristotle and the early dialogues of Plato, Taylor teases out the character and teachings of the real Socrates. A brief but worthwhile work for the student of philosophy and philosophers.
I have a hard time reading/listening to true fiction books. I think this is because my main reason for reading is to learn and not necessarily just for enjoyment, although I do read many historical fiction books. Favorites history/biography books and science/tech info books.
I didnt know much about socrates so it was worth the listen just to gain the basic knowledge about him. Cant say it was super duper engaging but I'm glad I listened. Cant say that for all the books I've listened to.
