Publisher's Summary

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

This was not an easy book to listen to, but the narrator did an excellent job and it was worth the effort.
