Clear, concise, and direct

I needed a simple and clear introductory explanation for dummies of what differential equations are. I have only seen the 1 st lecture, but it is exactly what I was looking for. I like his unassuming lecture style. He explains everything in its most basic terms, and still maintains the integrity of the subject.

As for his personality, I think he is funny. He just tells it like it is.
Anyone that takes offense to his aside comments is way too thin skinned. This isn't group therapy , it's math.

He may be a tad douchey

Someone said he was a jerk, and while he can be one, this is irrelevant. The quality of his lectures is very good and he explains the concepts very well. Why would someone focus on his personality, when it has no connection to his ability. I actually think he's kind of goofy, but not in a mean way. He expects the students to be on time, bring the book, pay attention actively, and expects that what he says is not lost on deaf ears. What's wrong with that? He goes to great lengths to explain all the material and I found it clear and much better than my current class on the same subject. I therefore understand that sometimes he may get frustrated. I personally am sick of students (and people) who expect constant cuddling and hand holding. This is an advanced class, and like he said, not required to graduate, so he expects students who love math and are pretty advanced. The lectures are great, and I fully recommend them to anyone taking this subject.

A bit of a jerk.

Prof. Rosenthal is a bit of a jerk and amply demonstrates this in lecture six at 6 minutes into the talk. Frankly, it is an embarrassing moment. He reminds one of all the bad, pedantic profs one has ever had, from Kingsfeild to Sister Diesel Locomotive. There are plenty of other diffeq courses available. Pass on this one. I like the MIT series much better.
