Simon Blackburn had been badly let down by this production. The stilted, declamatory style of the narrator makes it, at least to me, completely unlistenable. A real shame as I read the book some time ago and just wanted to refresh my memory. Based on this I will just have to reread the hard copy.

Would you listen to Think again? Why?
I'm not sure this is the type of book that'd garner a second listen from most readers unless there was something you didn't quite understand, but that's just my opinion and I can't speak for anyone else.
What other book might you compare Think to and why?
The Problems of Philosophy by Bertrand Russell is another recommended starting point for the subject of Philosophy by /r/philosophy, I haven't gotten around to giving it a read but I hope to soon.
Did Norman Dietz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
The narrator did a spectacular job but something a lot of people could probably look past but I couldn't was that he kept over-pronouncing(idk if this is a real word) the letter 'h' in 'wh' words. He'd almost blow out a little of his breathe every time he'd say what, or why during the introduction where both those words are frequently used.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I don't think I'd want to watch this movie unless they gave it some Bill Nye spin and the tag line would have to be something along the lines of " The Philosophy Guy" (patent pending, but not really).
