Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.   

This Penguin Classic is performed by Antonio Aakeel, star of Eaten by Lions. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Robin Waterfield.  

First published in the 1920s, The Prophet, became the bible of 1960s culture and was credited with founding the New Age movement, yet it still continues to inspire people around the world today. A hugely influential guide to living, Gibran's Prophet speaks of many things central to daily life: love, marriage, death, beauty, passion, eating, work and play. The spiritual message he imparts, of finding divinity through love, blends Eastern mysticism, religious faith and philosophy with simple, comprehensible advice.

A seminal book that likely needs a few re-reads

A seminal book that likely needs a few re-reads.

I liked this book and read it in the course of two mornings. Given its age, you can clearly see how this book was groundbreaking at the time, however there have been so many books following in its wake since that it now seems somewhere trite.

Probably needs a few re-reads to get more from it!

perfect wisdom (with a helpful introduction too)

we didn't really need another version of gibran's the prophet on audible.

but the introduction to this book makes this the version to purchase since other audible versions don't include the helpful on background on gibran's life and biography.
