The book by A.E. Taylor is worth the listen. However the narration leaves a little to be desired.
In the first hour of this audiobook the narrator stumbles over a few words. At one point an airplane flies overhead which is clearly discernible on the recording. The narration also either has an echo or the recording took place where there was a crowd in close proximity.
Again the material of the book is top-shelf but the narration could have been better.

of the historical Socrates and his philosophy. Using mainly the accounts of Aristotle and the early dialogues of Plato, Taylor teases out the character and teachings of the real Socrates. A brief but worthwhile work for the student of philosophy and philosophers.

If you could sum up Socrates in three words, what would they be?
I didnt know much about socrates so it was worth the listen just to gain the basic knowledge about him. Cant say it was super duper engaging but I'm glad I listened. Cant say that for all the books I've listened to.
this guy's voice is so affected...the material could be interesting, but the reader just spoils it for me.

I have seen not to many books that cover the story about CYNICISM. I would like to suggest that the subject is needed as we live in a age where one can fall into the trap of cynics territory. People are also confused about the way people act and can actually think a person is cynical in this fast moving age when they are not. Please help people become aware of this fact.
