Simple introduction to Plato
Philosophy is not the easiest subject to grasp but this book does a good job simplifying and giving a broad understanding of Plato’s works. I would highly suggest this to anyone who is about to take a philosophy course. The narrator is a bit robotic though. She annunciates well but it has no emotion.

Getting to know Plato
Would you listen to Plato: A Very Short Introduction again? Why?
Yes. It provided a solid introduction to Plato's works as well as his impact on Western European philosophy.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
I don't know if I would describe anything as truly compelling, but Julia Whelan was an excellent narrator with a clear and pleasant sounding voice.
Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Not that I can remember.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Plato...the man and his thoughts.
Any additional comments?
This is a great introductory book. This with Julia Annas' other introductory books makes for a very solid entry into ancient philosophy.
