Best philosophy intro ever

What more can I say. It’s the easiest, wittiest and most fun philosophy intro audiobook I’ve listened to. I have bought many philosophy audiobooks and courses but this was the most illuminating of them all because now I have a map to reading the philosophers introduced here.

Great overview

Really well put together overview of thoughts and their thinkers. I enjoyed the personal back story to each quote. I'm Now inspired to go out and read in further detail the philosophers that chimed with me! Recommended.

Don't Panic

Bite size pieces from the beast which they cut with their steely knives.Read well and written even weller.

Loved it.
