Worthwhile, but Like 'Angels and Demons'

Solid stuff well delivered (except for the sad attempts at accents). But... listener beware: the crisp narration often begins a topic with hard science them moves to squishy 'indications' and then onto flights of conjecture that confuse correlation with causation and prescribe campus-fad remedies that frequently conflict with earlier hard-science points made. All this in the same, authoritative, faux-reasonable tone. One must listen carefully to separate the good stuff from the faddish blather. That said, if you can be self-disciplined, this course is worth its cost.
