Book Review -- Socrates: A Man for Our Times

I recently enjoyed the audiobook version of Socrates: A Man for Our Times by Paul Johnson. I confess that I have never been much of a student of antiquity, and that someone with more knowledge about that time would probably be able to enjoy this book more than I did. Despite my lack of orientation to the people and ways of ancient Athens, I still got a lot out of the book. The author certainly has an engaging way of describing his understanding of that ancient city and its then inhabitants, including Socrates.
