What are people saying?
"A NOVEL EXPERIENCE"
This is a novel experience. I’m an absolute amateur in the subject, but have learned loads since the meetups. Access to a leading expert with the ability to ask questions - that can’t compare to any book or video.
- Martina G.
"Spark of curiosity"
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.
"BEST READING EXPERIENCE"
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.
"HOW THINKERS THINK"
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.
- Michael C.
