Publisher's Summary

Thomas More's Utopia stands out as one of the most striking political works ever written. Composed specifically as a response to Henry VIII's break with Rome, the book meditates on the perfect society while indirectly critiquing the political and social ills of Tudor England. Containing thoughts on religious pluralism, a welfare state, and women's rights, More's book was well ahead of its time, already hinting at later theories on communism and capitalism centuries before Marx, Engels, and Smith.

If only......

St. Thomas More wrote a wonderful fairy tale which offers a focus on what are necessary to life and the pain we apply to our communities with our seemingly insatiable appetite for more things rather than a better life. Well read by the narrator.

Well worth your time 😊

When you listen to this book you have to remember when it was written, the language is wonderfully traditional and the reader does a great job.
This is both an inspirational and thought provoking book which could even, in my opionon, be a possible record of the Indu civilization in South Asia 2600 to 1900 BC.
Enjoy 🌏
