Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in philosophy. The chapters on Montaigne stand out particularly! A great beginners guide!

Really good introduction to the core ideas of these philosophers. Perfect for beginners in philosophy.
an interesting t.ake on different philosophers and how they relate to every day Life today.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this to a friend who had not looked into philosophy in great detail. It may be covering old ground for those who have studied philosophy, but I found the way in which the ideas of great thinkers were packaged in to instantly applicable life lessons may give these ideas new life.
What did you like best about this story?
Being predominantly a reader of scientific non-fiction, the prose was unfamiliar and at first slightly frustrating. In the beginning i found myself wishing he would get to the point rather than discussing the way the sunset was playing on the flower petals. I did soften towards this style as the book went on and learnt to enjoy the descriptive style and wait patiently for his ideas to be fleshed out through whatever narrative he was using to illustrate them.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I found it better to space it out over several weeks, there is much to reflect on in your own life after each chapter.
