My brain loves this!!

"My new favorite hobby is listening to The Great Courses lessons. I have learned about Particle Physics, Ancient Egyptian History, the Anatomy of the Brain, and the Industrial Revolution. My brain can barely contain its delight in what it will learn next! The few courses that did not meet my expectation were easily returned without a hassle."

Not quite what I expected...BUT...

"I expected more science and less generalizations. The use of the word "but" got to be a distraction. Religion was not addressed well. Far better is Michael Shermer's course: Skepticism 101: How to Think like a Scientist. (No buts about it.)"

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic

"I've ordered courses on all these subjects, including the course for high school students on becoming a successful student. I am very pleased with the courses I ordered for myself. The first two were CDs, but the latest was in DVD format. Frankly, either format works just fine for me. I am an avid reader, and enjoy learning a variety of subjects. The courses were as advertised, and I will continue to order in the future."

Wonderful Way to Learn How to Meditate!

"Well organized and evenly paced, this highly informative course clears away myths about meditation and guides you through the initial days of the mindfulness meditation practice, showing you how to cope with typical stumbling blocks to practice such as getting distracted by wandering thoughts or physical discomforts. In addition to teaching you how to be alive to the present moment in your life, it teaches you to consider and appreciate all sentient life and the common goals all sentient beings share: to be healthy, to be happy, and to be free from suffering."

A great way to continue your personal education!

"I travel a lot for work and find little "free" time to read deeply on many of the subjects that interest me. Also, given the relatively poor cultural education and the divisive politics in this country I consider it a personal responsibility to understand as much about the world, its people, and their respective histories as I can. The Great Courses provides me with this in spades. The courses are insightful, entertaining, and, best of all, educational and enlightening. I can't wait to dive into more of them.

Great Courses-Great Deal !

"Ordered Great Courses Finance Class and enjoyed it thoroughly. Best part of this class is I ordered the DVD and able to back to the info for further review or refresh my memory. Full of information and saves me time attending a night class at a local college."
