A fascinating but vast subject, the information is well organized, making it easy for someone with only a general education in this area to follow, but there does not seem to be the talking-down to the student that too often muddles audio-lectures and he does not veer off into personal agendas. He is amusing with out it being a distraction from the material and has a wonderfully clear and pleasant voice. I wanted to hear more when each tape ended.
I will be checking out other audio books by Prof. Daniel Robinson.
