"Crito" is a short but important dialogue that relates a conversation between Socrates and his wealthy friend, Crito, regarding justice, injustice, and the appropriate response to injustice.
Plato described his idea of an ideal society in his most famous work, the Republic. In the first two books, Socrates sets out to define justice and the most just way of governing.

As someone who's interest in reading philosophy has only recently been sparked, I found this book to be a great introduction to the works of Plato and philosophy in General.
The format is a little dry at first but the content speaks for it self. 5 minutes in and your lost in thought.
If this is your first time reading The Republic, it is worth noting that the entire collection consists of 7 books. This one (as it says) has Apology (which I liked very much) Crito, and the first 2 books of The Republic, which is a good starting point and might seem like a lot, but is of course relative.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I had logic and ethic courses that was hard to get into; not a fan of either subject.
What did you like best about this story?
It help simplify "The Apology and Citro. I am 64, I can hardly remember my name at times and my reading as decrease immensely. Listening to the work helped me past both subjects.
Have you listened to any of Walter Covell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Do you think Apology, Crito, and The Republic, Books 1 and 2 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No! This is a silly question.
Any additional comments?
No, I still do not like logic, however I has better understanding.
