Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this audiobook. It's intelligent, well organized, relatively easy to follow, although some passages are very complex and require serious concentration or following along with the actual book. This audiobook is written by Majid Fakhry who is an internationally recognized scholar in Islamic philosophy. Highly recommended.
