The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.
... in this reading, where the narration read by a woman is interrupted by a man reading the original passages. I see no need to change the reader for these quotes but even if there might be good reasons that I don't know of, the pseudo continental accents, a mix of what the reader considers to be German and French accents are simply insufferable.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
More clarity on the distinct people with, perhaps fewer people highlighted.
What was most disappointing about Professor Ed Casey’s story?
I don't have a clear idea of who's who and what's what.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I admit that the narrator did as well as she could.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Yeah, nowhere in the description does it list the philosophers who were gone over. I had to look at the tiny photo of the cover to get their names so I can look them up on WikiPedia.
I get the feeling that this series is just cranking out books without any real concern about how hard it is to comprehend.
