Brilliant!

Review #3 above says it all. Very good presenter, as a lecturer myself I've learned a few things just from that! Brilliant content, loved it.

Great Presenter, very interesting topic

Ben Polak is a fantastic lecturer, very engaging, brings humour to the topic and learning, and very easy to listen to. Highly recommend this both for the content and the presenter.
