Customer Reviews

Very impressed

This guy really brings this material to life, and doesn't skimp on the important details. Very happy to have this course available!

Behavior brought alive!

Robert Sapolsky isn't just accomplished, or experienced. His personality and his love of the subject really shows in the way he presents the material. I really enjoyed this, and I hope that Stanford makes more of his courses accessable here!

Transformational course...

The lectures on Chaos, reductionism, emergence and complexity should be pre-req for all freshman, if not of all voters...

What is learned in this course is not just about biology, it will give the listener a new insight into science, business, politics or any other endeavor of interest he or she may pursue. God forbid it may even help ones personal relationships!

Excellent material presented with mastery, and always in style with humor that does not diminish the seriousness of the subject.

Thank you Professor Sapolsky and Stanford for this great gift.

...just another bee dancing around hoping to point others to the pot of honey.
