Would you consider the audio edition of The Platonic Tradition to be better than the print version?

As far as I know the print version does not exist yet. But it was great to hear how it would be to have him teach it. For the same reason I enjoyed hearing Thomas Merton's recorded lectures. He did a great version of himself which is not true of all authors.

What about Professor Peter Kreeft’s performance did you like?

Its him in his unvarnished nerdy professor voice.

Any additional comments?

A great explanation of the historic flow of philosophy. Platonic Traditions made me think, "All my philosophy professors were terrible." Will listen to it again at some point.

Any additional comments?

Great insights into LOTR. Worth a second listen. Encouraging another reading of LOTR. There is a real dearth of audio versions of books on this subject. Not having audio of Thomas Shippey on Tolkien is terrible.
