Love the simple and clear presentation and the wealth of further reading information. The interviews were also a very valuable resource.

Excellent, this would have helped me and everyone I know, when we started our lifes journey. The program was fun, interesting and of course professional. As a man of few words, thank you.

It's never too late to learn, so here I go.

Ainda estou estudando porém já me ensinou muitas técnicas novas que para conseguir absorver melhor os estudos e ter mais foco.

Excellent course that I wish I had discovered sooner. Tremendously helpful techniques to take away from here and not just into academic studies but also everyday life. I look forward to making use of what i've learnt in the course.

Practically the course is very digestible with plenty of 'optional' content should you be interested.
