What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better research.THIS is transparently slanted review of this philosopher's work - only part that might be useful are the last 8 minutes of 3 timelines contextualizing W's time and work.

What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

he's a fine reader with a nice brit accent

Any additional comments?

this is indeed a story - not resampling any other scholarship I've read (or heard)
