The Consolations of Philosophy

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Alain de Botton

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2006

Duration: 6 hours 5 minutes


Alain de Botton draws on the work of six of the world's most brilliant thinkers to offer this panoply of accessible, entertaining wisdom to guide us through our most common problems. From the frustration of misplacing your keys to the sadness of losing a loved one, the writings of Seneca can offer consolation. For the particular agony of not having enough money, Epicurus has a solution that everyone can afford. And if your life is beset with difficulties, you may turn to the words of Nietzsche, whose own life was riddled with poverty, bad health, and excruciating loneliness.

    Excellent book. Reader spoke too fast for my taste, otherwise good job. Of course a book about fascinating people and wise thinking can be boring; not this one.
