Go Henry!

Great message. This is important information in our day and age of unjust and immoral laws.

Navel gazing we all need in this political times

What made the experience of listening to Civil Disobedience the most enjoyable?

It's a classic that anyone who wants to be a better person should read.

Any additional comments?

You see his point and hopefully it helps you to grow. And think more fully of the implications your life can have on others, and the power in one and all of us.

Thoreau is brilliant

A brilliant example of both literary skill and political thought. The reading is fairly good even if I found the particular North American accent a bit cumbersome - though this is a fairly personal point of pretence. Still it hasn't stopped me listening to this about 6 times.
