In 81 brief chapters, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, as well as a serene and generous spirit. It teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao: the basic principle of the universe.

This is a phenomenal performance for such a cheap price. My only complaint is actually the chapter breakup: you will have multiple chapters within each ‘chapter’ on the app, while this doesn’t take away from the experience and I know it’s nit picky, I think it would be nicer to be able to find things more easily.

  • Plato's Euthyphro

In Euthyphro, Socrates is on his way to the court, where he must defend himself against serious charges brought by religious and political authorities. On the way he meets Euthyphro, an expert on religious matters who has come to prosecute his own father. Socrates questions Euthyphro's claim that religion serves as the basis for ethics. Euthyphro is not able to provide satisfactory answers to Socrates' questions, but their dialogue leaves us with the challenge of making a reasonable connection between ethics and religion.

Completely worth listening to, hearing a dialogue from two people is the way it should be done and Ray Childs rocks at it! Fantastic opportunity to hear many dialogues with the same voice of Socrates

Is there really a God? Or does God exist only in our heads? Is the Bible truly God's Word? Or is it a jumble of fanciful myths? Atheist Universe details why God is unnecessary to explain the universe's diversity, organization, and beauty. Using simple, straightforward logic, this audiobook rebuts every argument that claims to "prove" God's existence.

if you are to listen to any atheistic book let this be your first, it introduces ideas in a fresh new way and beautifully introduces you to the world and the overarching dialogue taking place in the secular and atheistic landscape.

This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

There are bits of music at the end of chapters which sometimes drone on, but overall this book is incredibly insightful for anyone interested in Philosophy and the perfect catalyst to see if you would like to study it

Avengers assemble! Tackling intriguing dilemmas and issues that no single great philosopher can withstand, this powerful book enlists the brainpower of an A-list team of history's most prominent thinkers to explore the themes behind the action of Marvel Comics' all-star superhero team. This thought-provoking book will help you understand this band of superheroes better, whether you've followed the Avengers for years or are a Joss Whedon fan just getting to know them.
