Aristotle continues to hit home 28 May 2008
By Dr. Kenneth P. Nunn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To have learned from Plato and to have taught Alexander the Great should make us take this man seriously. But the level of debate with himself in the Nichomachean ethics is awesome in and of itself. There are of course times when you have to hit "play back" just to digest the argument. there are also times when you realise other people have taken up where he left off. However, the sheer originality of his genius, the sweep of his knowledge and grasp of different fields of learning, leave the reader feeling a gain of at least ten points of IQ. The woman who reads on this audio production has outstanding elocution and reads with feeling and emphasis at the right places. I prefer to hear Aristotle, and Plato for that matter, than to read them. This is a beautiful and very professional production.

The audio book version is very good 18 Mar 2008
By Jeffrey Van Wagoner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been listening to several audio books on my commute and have been going through several of the classics. I was somewhat apprehensive listening to Aristotle since I thought it may be too complicated to listen to without needing to continually rewind and go over parts that were hard to understand. Fortunately this was not the case. The unabridged translation was very clear, and the reader, Nadia May, made it very easy to understand.

As in other writings of Aristotle, the Nichomachean Ethics show what a master he is at organizing somewhat difficult subjects into simple categories. I learned a lot and thought about ethics in new ways. I highly recommend this audio book, though I will also get a hard copy for a reference.
