Thorough & insightful

This is excellent. Very thorough. It was good to see I'm doing a lot of things right. But it took me 12 years of corporate training to work them out for myself -- it would've saved me a lot of time if I'd read this earlier in my career! And I heard a lot of good ideas I plan to implement, too. All trainers should read this at least once.
