Ethics, also know as The Nicomachean Ethics after its first editor, Aristotle's son Nicomachus, begins with these words: "Every art and every inquiry...every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good." The book is one of the most influential ethical treatises of all time. Written in 350 BC, it identifies happiness as life's goal. How do we achieve this goal? Not through the satisfactions that come from pleasure, wealth, or fame. According to Aristotle, the true path to happiness lies in contemplation of philosophic truth. This is the only action through which humans can exercise their distinctively unique trait: the ability to reason. Begin your own search for ultimate truth by listening to the complete text of this monumental work of Western philosophy.

Tough but good
- Louise M
Probably not because the reader was very monotone and at times difficult not to find uninterested.
All historical works and ancient society and how new societies were formed in their image.
Monotone, dull, lectures style
Understanding societal differences.
Good book to get into especially if you want to further your understanding as to why society is how it is and possibly why it has become murky at best for humanity.
