Customer Reviews

cannot understand

What little can be made out is golden, but unfortunately the audio is atrocious. It sounds like someone is recording the lecture from the room next door or something. A great loss, too, because from what I could understand it seems like an amazing course. Rather absurd that somebody went to all this trouble to record and upload all the lectures without noticing that most of it is just garbled noise.

If only we could hear him

There seem to be moments in these lectures where special insights are offered, where the listeners learn the source of this man’s reputation. But those moments are lost in the bad audio. I would estimate more than 80% is lost. Sad, just sad.

audio ruined it

Audio is terrible; can't hear most of it
