Publisher's Summary

Marcus Aurelius ruled the Roman Empire from AD 161-180. He wrote the 12 books of the Meditations as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova and the second book was written at Carnuntum.

It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published, and the work has no official title, so Meditations is one of several titles commonly assigned to the collection. These writings take the form of quotations varying in length from one sentence to long paragraphs.

ROBIN HOMER - BEST NARRATOR!!!

Easy to listen with the gravitas of importance. I have other audiobook of the Meditations; this is far better.

*THE* BEST NARRATION. Hands down. Calm, clear.

*THE* BEST NARRATION. Hands down. Calm, clear, collected. Stoic. No annoying, obnoxious tones, not sleepy. Not choppy, no obsolete words. Very understandable. It sounds like someone reasoning with you in an armchair, before a crackling fire.
