Publisher's Summary

Sobre A Brevidade Da Vida é um ensaio moral escrito por Sêneca o Jovem, um filósofo estoico romano, para seu padrasto Paulinus. O filósofo nos traz muitos princípios estoicos sobre a natureza do tempo, principalmente a que os homens desperdiçam muito do seu próprio tempo em perseguições sem sentido. De acordo com o ensaio, a natureza dá ao homem tempo o suficiente para fazer o que é realmente importante e o indivíduo precisa permitir que isso aconteça propriamente. No geral, o tempo pode ser melhor usado no estudo da filosofia, de acordo com Sêneca.

Este ensaio foi cuidadosamente adaptado para uma forma contempornea para permitir uma fácil leitura.

Please note: This audiobook is in Portuguese.

Loved the content, hated the audiobook

This is the first book I purchased in Portuguese and I could not be more disappointed. The Narrator isn't a native speaker, and although he make a great effort, his accent tends to be annoying.

The translation seem to have been done on a Google Translator kind of software. Several sentences only make sense if you translate them back to English. Then you can understand what the author meant with it.

All in all, I was better off getting the English version, because it would have been a lot less mind tiring. I had to listen the book in Portuguese and than translate it back to English in my head so I could get it. All of this on a PHILOSOPHY BOOK.

I would say doing that on Gossip Girl would be a challenge, imagine on a book like this. Just don't buy it.

Audiobook em português

Foi o primeiro audiobook em português que encontrei aqui. Gostaria de encontrar outros. Apesar de o narrador não ter domínio perfeito do idioma sua performance é bastante razoável e compreensível.
