Would you listen to On the Shortness of Life, On the Happy Life, and Other Essays again? Why?
yes. It felt like listening to an elderly grandfather pass on his wisdom on life before he goes. It's filled with life-strengthening lessons and highly inspirational anecdotes. It's so different to hear about discipline in this light.
What was one of the most memorable moments of On the Shortness of Life, On the Happy Life, and Other Essays?
The way Seneca talks to a young student and you feel like his lessons are out of pure caring and not for profit or networking when the same topics come from a different source in the 21st century.
What does James Cameron Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I found that having a strong male voice was perfect because it was like having Seneca speaking. It made the advice authoritative.

Two small shortcomings:
a) Whose translation is this? It would be nice to know and, if I wished, to follow along
b) An index showing which tracks belong with which essays would have been nice.
