Well done. Gives a good roadmap. References to URLs in audio format are useless, though.
A couple good notes, but he even says to use YouTube. Not a must read in my opinion.
Can't wait to actually sit down and get started with this process! He makes it sound like a walk in the park!

just a boring set of step by step instructions that could be found on each website. nothing inspirational at all. also the narration sounds like a robot. very boring.
