Entertaining, informative, excellent narration...a great introduction to Chopin. Listened to it twice in 1 week.
A recording of a lecture on screenwriting, not comprehensive but not bad either. Covers all the basics. There is a MAJOR PROBLEM, however, the lecture is about 15% Q and A and while the lecturer's voice is clear, the questioners' voices aren't. At all. Not an enjoyable listening experience.
No music. I was hoping the narration (which is okay, not great) would be broken up now and again with samples from the composers' works.
True, this doesn't give an indepth account of Beethoven's life, but the production's lively and entertaining--it reminds me of great radio. The Life and Works of Chopin is another great title.
Doesn't tell us anything about Picasso...aside from the fact he was a complete heel...terrible writing, dubious interpretations...it's amazing this was published.
If you know absolutely nothing about computers, than this might be for you. Otherwise...
The author/narrator explains basic hardware and software and suggests--if you want to learn more and get more out of your PC--that you find a computer guru friend (and have him/her do all the heavy lifting).
One more thing...the author/narrator's humor is decidedly unhumorous.
