A great introduction and easy to absorb.

I was looking for an accessible and non-technical introduction and found it here. Very informative and highly recommended.

Always have loved philosophy. Buuuut...

Love the book. But the reader whistles his S's which makes me cringe. It's like a Tea pot boiling 6 inches from your head.

Theres a lot of whistles

Would you try another book from Gregory Moto and/or Jim D Johnston?

I think i am not.

If you’ve listened to books by Gregory Moto before, how does this one compare?

I didn't listen

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim D Johnston’s performances?

Surelly not, there are a lot of whistles it's make the book hard to listen

worst narration imaginable

the narrator pronounces his S's with such a piercing whistle that it was intolerable. I tried to force myself to listen to it anyway but just could not do so. The content of the book sounded promising but I couldn't get past the second chapter due to this irritating assault on the ears. I will likely end up buying the Kindle version and reading it. the only reason for the low overall rating of 3 is because the audio version was not usable to me.

I couldn't get through 1 minute of this book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I was looking forward to this book. The issue is the Narrator whistles his "S's" so bad it's impossible to listen to.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim D Johnston?

Anyone

Any additional comments?

Can I get a rebate?

Awesome

I had no real substantial expectation of this book but I decided to get it and listen to it anyway. I found it to be a great contextualization of the Stoic philosophers and I'll likely give it another listen through after listening to some of the Stoics' work. Excellent content and presentation. The final section with the author's thoughts were also helpful, even giving actionable tips for starting a personal meditation practice.

Great Intro to a Great Way of Thought

Great quotes from the masters of Stoicism. I'll be thinking about this book for a long time.

a good introduction to stoicism

A good introduction to some of the ancient stoics. This book offers mainly some background and history of the philosophy and some of its key figures and maybe not so much of the principles to put into practice

Narrator whistles

The content seems good but is very difficult to listen to because the narrator whistles when speaking. It's very distracting and annoying

Great introduction to philosophy

This book is a great introduction to philosophy. There are several books that attempt to introduce stoicism but miss the mark. After reading this book you will have a great understanding to the greek schools of thought and feel much more comfortable diving deeper in philosophy.

Horrible narration

The narration is unbearable. The piercing "S" whistle sounds makes this audio book horrible. I am disappointed and wish I could get my money back to get the regular kindle version.
