Buyer beware: Amazon does this ALL the time. So frustrating. This Kindle version is NOT the version that matches the Complete Works of Plato with which it is advertised as the Kindle version. This Kindle version is the OLD Jowett translation of all the dialogues. Jowett is fine if you don't care about accuracy or have something other than understanding Plato in mind. I accept that the newer Complete Dialogues translations are not perfect, but neither are they over 100 years old. So many, so many, newer and better translations exist so I was really wanting a Kindle version that was NOT Jowett. I returned. I hate Amazon for more "scholarly" pursuits. They just don't pay enough attention to things like translators.

Plato has always been my favorite classical thinker because of his transcendental thoughts. Thanks for this!

All of Plato in one place. Quite the bargain since it's bulk in hardback makes it useful as both a doorstop and for self defense- so you've got that going for you when you're done reading it.

I have never been more torn about a book. The actual content here is excellent, but the physical book is poorly made. The binding immediately detached from pages the first time I opened it and the dust cover fits as loosely as possible. The book is bound in two sections so that there are defects in the way the pages lie. Not sure if this all copies or I just got unlucky...

A stunning achievement with the new translations. At last!
