What are people saying?
This is a novel experience. I’m an absolute amateur in the subject, but learned loads in the meetup. Access to a leading expert with the ability to ask questions – that can’t compare to any book or video.

The infectious enthusiasm, relatability, cool mannerisms… they are the teacher all of us wish we’d had. The magic is igniting the spark of curiosity and then the desire to learn just oozes out of people.
– Lisa S.
This was definitely the best book reading experience I’ve had. Having the option to ask questions made it all clearer, more fascinating, and fun. It is a great way to learn something when you have a mission.
– Emily B.
The Q&A format is exciting. I like that it showcases how thinkers think rather than just tell us what they think. I was able to have some back-and-forth around the ideas which is where the real value is.
