Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome from AD 161 until his death in 180, was the philosopher-king envisaged by Plato. A stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius wrote a series of spiritual exercises (now known as his meditations) while engaged on a series of border wars in the Danube region.
His writings, intended only for himself, reveal a mind of great humanity, humility, and insight. For over 2,000 years, these writings have inspired men and women to engage in the philosophical life, which involves two goals: to "know yourself" and then to ask, "What is the right way to live?"

Better, clearer audio quality. With a little effort, I am certain that the audio could have been restored.
Derek Jacoby and Marcus Aurelius should have been an unbeatable team, a meditative experience. Instead, the audio is muffled, and this is a great distraction, and disrespectful of this great work and the great actor.
You've got to be kidding.
This is the only recording from audible of which I have had a disappointing experience.
Fascinating seeing as the philosophy comes from 2000 ago without any of today's technology. The key to contentment explained in a simple and easy to understand way
