Dr Wilson is very good as a public speaker. He brings just the right amount of humor and he takes complicated topics and makes them easy to understand. I wish there were more practices questions to the quizes.

Very cool!

Great stuff.

Great couse. Detailed, but made simple. I thought it was very useful and great that there were a bit more questions than what i've seen in some of the previous series i've been watching. I would definently recomend it to others. I study veterinarian medicin, so i would ofcourse have loved it if you also made courses for that, because i still have to study the species differences from my book after watching the series - but it is great that I can get the main principles from your lectures it truly does help a lot.
