Disappointing But Adequate
After loving the audio versions of Plato's Socratic dialogs, I wanted to try listening to Aristotle. This recording was disappointing both for its selections and the narration.
The selections lean toward colorful but unchallenging tidbits such as zoological observations. I'd have liked more of the Ethics, Logic, and other work that I might spend some time contemplating.
The narrator doesn't help matters, sounding as pedantic as a small-college Philosophy professor serving out his time until retirement.
But still, it's Aristotle. There isn't much of his work available so far in Audio format, but I'd say try Nichomachean Ethics first. Come back to this collection if you want more.

Surprisingly insightful even today
From government to biology and, ultimately human happiness, Aristotle's philosophy resonates well centuries after being written.
