There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The quality of the product is great.
Beware : Previously I had ordered a penguin classics book and the book looked pirated.
So inspect the quality properly.
I already had bought another translation (A.S.L. Farquharson) which unfortunately was intent on form over functionality, i.e. written in old English, poetic but hard to read. So I looked for an easy to understand translation and I zeroed in on Gregory Hays's and the search in Amazon led me to this book. Unfortunately, this is not the Gregory Hay's translation as claimed in the product description (see screenshot). However, this translation did solve the purpose i.e. easy to follow and I am overall content with it. Amor fati, as they say.
PS: Reducing one star only because of the incorrect information provided, the book as such is excellent.
EXCELLENT GUIDE FOR ONES DEVELOPMENT AND TOWARDS SOCIAL GOOD.

"MARCUS AURELIUS ANTONINUS turned into born on April 26, A.D. 121. His actual name was M. Annius Verus, and he changed into sprung of a noble own family which claimed decent from Numa, 2nd King of Rome."
I was also surprised at the many references to Marcus Aurelius's many web pages:
"on the very first web page of his book..."
" ... MARCUS AURELIUS ANTONINUS become born on April 26, AD 121. His actual name changed into M. Annius Verus , and he changed into sprung of a noble own family which Claimed descent from Numa, 2d King of Rome. Thus the maximum spiritual of emperors Got right here of the blood of the maximum pious of early kings. His father, Annius Verrus, had held excessive office in Rome, and his grandfather, of the identical call, were thrice Consul..."
My first reaction was "WTF?"... it appears like it was machine translated and not edited at all. Later it gets worse:
"His body changed into knowledgeable to hardihood through way of wrestling, searching, and outside video video video video games; and no matter the truth that his charter have become susceptible, he confirmed superb personal courage to encounter the fiercest boars. At the same time he changed into stored from the extravagancies of his day. The tremendous delight in Rome end up the strife of the Factions, as they have been known as, inside the circus. The racing drivers used to undertake clearly one in every of 4 shades—pink, blue, white, or green—and their partisans confirmed an eagerness in helping them which no longer some element can also furthermore additionally want to surpass."
"... outside video video video video games" (?!?!?) Seriously?
So, it's basically unreadable. No idea how this was translated, or by who, but it's clearly not what I thought I was buying. No faith that the actual meditations which follow have been faithfully translated, and I've requesting a refund.
Best avoid this one and pick a version from a reputable source.
