"Overall I am very satisfied with my DVD courses; the last purchase was that of streaming. I had a little difficulty making the streaming easy; perhaps it requires a little more knowledge than I have when it comes to streaming from Great Courses. But I certainly appreciate that you folks will allow returns when a course doesn't fit my needs (that happened recently and you gave me credit for two courses). Thanks for providing this kind of education that helps me to continue mine in the future. jwa"

"I love getting the streaming programs because I buy and have it instantly. Everything works great - no complaints. I got "Biblical Israel" as I have a real curiosity about the ancient world and the origins of the great religions."

"The Great Courses are fantastic. Very convenient and great to listen to when biking and on the go as well as doing chores. Thought provoking material that opens up new areas of interest and deepen and refresh older ones."

"This was a gift to my son in California. I got a digital version, thinking he could download to his iPhone or other device and listen in his car going to & from work during a one hour commute. It is apparently a streaming version that can be heard only on the computer, because of the following in his vehicle:

He said he is navigating with his phone due to heavy commuting traffic, and the Great Course streaming goes back to the "Zero Point, or Start every time it is interrupted by the navigator on his phone. Or at least that is my understanding. So, my question is, can I get the CD version from you for the same price plus shipping which I am willing to pay, or do you have a better idea? His commute is his only "free time".
