Summary

Though this Word is true evermore, yet men are as unable to understand it when they hear it for the first time as before they have heard it at all. For, though, all things come to pass in accordance with this Word, men seem as if they had no experience of them, when they make trial of words and deeds such as I set forth, dividing each thing according to its nature and showing how it truly is. But other men know not what they are doing when awake, even as they forget what they do in sleep.

Phone book reading.

Heraclitus deserves a better reading than this breathless and all-too rapid monotone recital . Fragments read out like a grocery list.

Perfect memory.

However, the narration was very well.

Does it worth the money? no. Does it worth a listen, if you don't count the money? yes.
I recommend you buy the book with interpretations, after hearing this book.
The audio of the book, shall make it easier for you to concentrate and think, when you go ahead and read the quotes again.

Book stopped six minutes in

First I was disappointed that it was only 28 minutes. It seems like this was maybe written by a college student that had just studied Heraclitus and decided to make a book. It that was the case then great initiative but poor execution.
The book stopped at the six minute mark and was silent for the rest of the way. Making me feel that either I was truly listening to the sound of silence, should have been playing the recording backwards (because somehow that would make the sound return??) or that I was in the twilight zone.
Eh, its a philosophy book so it made me think. That has to count for something right?
