These classic fables use simple allegories to convey universal truths. Though it is unkown if Aesop ever actually existed, dating back to the sixth century, BC, these fables are known in cultures throughout the world and have been translated into many languages.

The reading is very disjointed and the grammer, pausimy, and vocabulary are all off. Some stories have a different tone because of this weird translation. This file should be deleted.

Before you could tuck it under your arm, before you could bring it up on your phone - you did not read scripture, you listened to it. For centuries, the only way to access God's word was to hear it read aloud in public gatherings. Today, many are blessed to own personal printed copies of the Bible, but there is a surprising benefit to hearing the scriptures read aloud, as it was for so many generations.

Since the book is long and download required it to be broken up into multiple books, they should have labels on the books and Chapters so you can pick up and leave off where you want and know where you are in the series.

In his most provocative and practical book yet, one of the foremost thinkers of our time redefines what it means to understand the world, succeed in a profession, contribute to a fair and just society, detect nonsense, and influence others. Citing examples ranging from Hammurabi to Seneca, Antaeus the Giant to Donald Trump, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows how the willingness to accept one's own risks is an essential attribute of heroes, saints, and flourishing people in all walks of life.

You still need to own a hard copy, but this helps with pronunciations and digestion.
