    Story
    "Worthwhile, but Like 'Angels and Demons'"

    Solid stuff well delivered (except for the sad attempts at accents). But... listener beware: the crisp narration often begins a topic with hard science them moves to squishy 'indications' and then onto flights of conjecture that confuse correlation with causation and prescribe campus-fad remedies that frequently conflict with earlier hard-science points made. All this in the same, authoritative, faux-reasonable tone. One must listen carefully to separate the good stuff from the faddish blather. That said, if you can be self-disciplined, this course is worth its cost.

    "it's Evolutionary psychology"

    Other than stating the obvious,evolutionary psychology is pointless and irrelevant to humanity and history it self.Great book.

    "Cool Stuff"

    I really think the lecturer presents quite complex concepts well. I have learnt such a lot, and will apply to the science of climate change.... that is, why do we pollute our planet?
