An Examined Life!
I haven't done much Plato since my college years. I loved the Apology, and the first 2/3 of Phaedo and I enjoyed the rest (Euthyphro, Crito, and end of Phaedo). I loved coming across phrases and quotes that I've heard again and again: "The unexamined life is not worth living... is there not one true coin, for which all things ought to exchange?--and that is wisdom... As for me, all I know is that I know nothing..." Amen.

This was the most understandable means of absorbing Plato's dialogues that I have encountered. The reader is very good at playing Socrates as the lovable curmudgeon. The only thing that could have improved this was to have other actors play the other parts. I was sometimes confused as to who was speaking. In summary it was more like listening to a conversation than reading a dry book on philosophy.
