This instructor is great and very helpful. I'd like to work under him.
You'd expect a professor of psychology to know how to present the material in an exciting and entertaining way, but no.
I find these lectures quite interesting and valuable. While at times it can be difficult to follow as people ask questions you can't hear, the substance of his discussions are solid. I just listened to lecture 8 on prosocial behavior and my mind is on fire with ideas I can apply to my work. Be warned though - this is not a 10 minute "how to" marketing piece. It is a long, thoughtful lecture on liking and social bonding. You'll need to spend some quality thinking time after listening.
