Basic, obvious - he fumbles too much with words & his constant hand motion is very annoying. Not well presented at all.

Covered topics and ideas are quite fascinating, but the way they are presented are a bit too monotonous.

One of many courses that are scientifically based. Easy to follow along, interact and look up information sources. Great course!
