Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from basically well made, but.... I don´t want to take a swipe against guys and girls who share their knowledge and experience. but nevertheless teaching in a platform which we have to pay for we should get also a good quality of sound and speech. The talking of Gary is so cheap sounding and annoying that one cannot believe that this is professional made. sorry for my honest words but the voice is sounding as if recorded with the cheapest mike and gated with some toy. Sorry, Gary, but I am sure that you could do this way better...
