Publisher's Summary

Written in Greek, without any intention of publication, by the only Roman emperor who was also a philosopher, the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) offer a remarkable series of challenging spiritual reflections and exercises developed as the emperor struggled to understand himself and make sense of the universe. 

Ranging from doubt and despair to conviction and exaltation, they cover such diverse topics as the nature of moral virtue, human rationality, divine providence, and Marcus' own emotions. 

But while the Meditations were composed to provide personal consolation and encouragement, in developing his beliefs Marcus Aurelius also created one of the greatest of all works of philosophy: a timeless collection of extended meditations and short aphorisms that has been consulted and admired by statesmen, thinkers and readers through the centuries.

Worst narrator - unable to pronounce common words

This version is nearly unusable as the narrator is unable to pronounce common words in ways that make any sense. For example, it seems that the narrator has never actually heard a person say a word such as "querulous" and so makes a very bad guess as to how it should be pronounced. As a listener, you spend a lot of time wondering what word is meant by each weird set of sounds the narrator produces when he encounters an uncommon word.
