Marcus Aurelius, emperor of Rome from AD 161 until his death in 180, was the philosopher-king envisaged by Plato. A stoic philosopher, Marcus Aurelius wrote a series of spiritual exercises (now known as his meditations) while engaged on a series of border wars in the Danube region.
His writings, intended only for himself, reveal a mind of great humanity, humility, and insight. For over 2,000 years, these writings have inspired men and women to engage in the philosophical life, which involves two goals: to "know yourself" and then to ask, "What is the right way to live?"

Fascinating seeing as the philosophy comes from 2000 ago without any of today's technology. The key to contentment explained in a simple and easy to understand way
"Muffled audio ruins the listening experience"
Better, clearer audio quality. With a little effort, I am certain that the audio could have been restored.
Derek Jacoby and Marcus Aurelius should have been an unbeatable team, a meditative experience. Instead, the audio is muffled, and this is a great distraction, and disrespectful of this great work and the great actor.
You've got to be kidding.
This is the only recording from audible of which I have had a disappointing experience.
