Yes! Very educational!
A lot of thoughtful life lessons given in a humorous way. Knowing that this is written in 1890, a lot of life truths must have started with this book. Interesting to take part of more than 120 years old knowledge that still is so up to date. Everyone should read this for his/hers upbringing.
We hear the fathers voice reading his interesting and educational letters to his son.
The narrater has a nice, calm voice that makes you listen with interest.
I have listened to this book in one sitting, but I want to listen to it ones more. I know that listening to it ones more will help me to capture more of this wisdom.
Read it! Your will be enriched!
