Most Helpful

Good presentation, but needed better performance

The organization of the book was good, but I would've preferred each example presented first, and then analysis. Lastly, the speakers voice sounded a bit robotic, and delivered too fast, but the concepts introduced were helpful. Needed more vocal variety. Overall I'm glad that I bought it, and will listen to it again.
