I suspect I will have the same thing to say about all of the books in this series, as they are all narrated by Charlton Heston and are similar in quality. These books are a lot of fun as they are concise, easy to understand, clear on the main points, and masterfully read. The recording is also excellent. Although my political leanings kept me from being excited about downloading a book read by Charlton Heston, I have to admit that he has a style and flair that make the books very listenable. The "European" accented readings of other philosophers by other actors are a little cheesy at first, but do help with the atmosphere.

What disappointed you about Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel?
The use of a pseudo German accent for Hegel was not only annoying but completely inept. The accent and the rhythm made these quotes practically useless. Heston was excellent. I am not sure why those who record philosophy feel the need to make the philosophers prigs. Hegel is difficult enough without providing a well paced easily understood voice for the presentation. A philosophical analysis should not feel the need to be high school drama.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I will serious reconsider trying any more philosophical tracts.
Would you be willing to try another one of Charlton Heston???s performances?
Heston in his own voice was excellent
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger and annoyance.
