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. The recording is also excellent. These books are a lot of fun as they are concise, easy to understand, clear on the main points, and masterfully read. 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.

This was one I just couldn't stomach. The 'cold dead hand' of the late Charlton Heston completely drains any sense from the narrative and makes it impossible to concentrate. I'd really been looking forward to this book, but Heston obviously read it out on autopilot as if he were reading a phone book, without any sense of what he was doing.
It's a classic example of how a really lousy choice of narrator can spoil an audiobook.
I shall wait for a better version one day. The material deserves better than this.
