This could have been a 'great' course if it wasn't restricted to an hour, which is far too short for a subject of this magnitude. The dialogue, which lets most courses down, is clear and precise but the lecture themselves are far too short and really need to be longer than the 45 second average length.

I am beginning to understand how this all works. I am a new entrepreneur whose mentor has thrown a few side balls that lead in this area of which I have no knowledge. I need to learn a lot quickly and this is helping immensely!
