    "For Those Looking For a Thoughtful Listen"

    I quite enjoyed it, it was a mandatory read for a course I was in, but I enjoyed it so much that I couldn't help but also get the Audio book. And the fact that the author readers it made the experience of "re-reading" or listening quite enjoyable.
