The Seven Storey Mountain is the extraordinary spiritual testament of Thomas Merton (1915-1968), a man who experienced life to its fullest in the world before entering a Trappist monastery. By the end of his life, he had become one of the 20th century's best-known and beloved Christian voices. This autobiography deals...not with what happens to a man, but what happens inside his soul.

Woefully incomplete audio version of a great work
Unless you want only the cliff notes of Merton's story and development of his ideas, this audio version is a waste of your time. I have the book (have not read it) and hoped this would cover it, but it doesn't. Feel cheated. Abridged obviously suggests that some portions are omitted, but it feels like more than 50% of the book is omitted although I have not done a detailed assessment to say the omission is closer to 25 or 75%, but a quick at the final chapters suggests its at least 50%.
