    Good content. Tested my patience.

    It was ok. I may refer back to it but the pace was slow. Plodding. I’m about half way through it and am struggling to get back into it. I just don’t have the time it requires. Lots of well known instructors move at a quicker pace. Probably why they do well selling their material direct rather that through an aggregator like pro edu
