This is the sort of book one ought to read, and reread, on a more or less continuous basis. Its classical vision spiced with enlightenment values is so rich that it could take more than a lifetime to fully inculcate (and therefore one can continuously pursue it). I found the long sections from about the middle to three fourths through, all of it history taken mostly from Herodotus and Plutarch, a bit tedious to listen to given what anticipations I had developed from the preceding sections (and one can read them separately anyways). The reader was excellent: the nobility of thought and its seriousness was perfectly conveyed to the listener.
