The Updated Socrates
If you could sum up Plato in three words, what would they be?
Clever, successful, improved.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Plato is the reason we know anything about Socrates, Plato also took many of Socrates' ideas and expanded on them.
What does Charlton Heston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Legibility. Plato presents many confusing ideas, and the explanations made by Charlton Heston make it easier to understand.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
NO! This is a long book, which is best listened to in several sittings.
Any additional comments?
If you like Socrates, then Plato is the one to thank.
If you like Socrates, then you will love Plato.

Political theories grew old
This was not the fault of anyone. I just got a little bored during the political theory section. I LOVED the biographical section on Socrates.
