My favourite rendition of Emerson’s essays

By far the best collection of his essays, as this collection includes those from First Series, Second Series, and Conduct Of Life. I found Bob Neufeld’s narration on YouTube and Librivox, and was definitely worth the purchase on Audible for the ease of use and navigation. His voice does the essays more than justice. Great work; highly recommend. Best collection on Audible.
