Pretty bland

I was hoping for more depth and example on use cases. Everything i heard was a brief overview of each topic. Narrator sounded bored and often said things tbat didn't make gramatical sense.

Terrible

Wrthin 10 minutes this devolved into an in comprehensible mishmash of words that seem to have been written by an unhaooy intern forced to make a marketing blog post. Absurd grammatical errors, pointless repititon and direct contradiction abound--scrum requires a huge culture shift but it's easy to adopt and everyone should do it no matter what

BRB seeing if I can get a refund.

Painfully repeatative, grammatical and content errors

Just completed my scrum master class and thought this might be a good listen to reinforce those learnings while driving, but I couldn’t make it more than a tenth through before I just had to turn it off, I could look past the poor writing and grammatical errors but the in
accuracies were just to risky to ignore as I’m preparing for the exam.
