way better than kuczynski's other stuff

Would you consider the audio edition of Thoughts to be better than the print version?

didn't know there was a print version. this sounds like something that was written to be listened to, not read.

kuczynski is really good when he lets his hair down. he's funny and eminently listenable. when he's doing logic, it's really boring. this is his best one, in my opinion.
