Michael really, really knows what he's talking about. It was refreshing to see that he knew about the subject so deeply, he could pull examples for everything on the spot. He's also very interested in it (as opposed to only being knowledgeable), and could offer us extra material in the way of book/podcasts recommendations. He's also a really funny guy, which made the class even more enjoyable.
