Nicomachean Ethics is Aristotle’s most famous work on the subject of ethics and virtue. It is based on notes from Aristotle’s lectures at the Lyceum and may have been edited by or dedicated to his son, Nicomachus. Aristotle believed that ethical knowledge is not precise knowledge, like logic and mathematics, but general knowledge like nutrition and exercise. Since ethics is a practical discipline rather than a theoretical one, he thought that to become "good", one could not simply study what virtue is; one must actually be virtuous. Aristotle postulates that everything is done with some goal in mind and that goal is "good". The ultimate goal, which he calls the "Highest Good" is happiness.

I got this audiobook and now it simply stopped working. No sound coming out. I tried rebooting my phone, but no use. It's either apple or audible. Terrible. Then, there's no easy way to get in touch with apple. Call them, and you talk to a robot. To talk to a real person you have to call during business hours. They sure can take your money 24/7, but convenient for them. I'm starting to think apple is just like other companies.

The voice is clear, but it's as if all punctuation is ignored in the reading. Even periods. Also, the voice makes me feel like I'm being sold something.
