Useless as audio only

Durring his lectures he is writing equations and diagrams on a chalk board. It is impossible to follow along if you can't see what he is talking about.

Good, but not the best format

These lectures are awesome, but they aren't that well suited to the audiobook format. The best thing to do is get the book, work through the sections, then listen to the audio lectures for each section. Otherwise, he'll be describing diagrams and equations and you won't know what he's talking about.

Constantly referring to black board

This is one of those courses where it really needs to be with video. He's constantly writing things on a board or referring to things that are on a board. Especially when he draws pictures to explain things but also when he writes formulas, you have no idea what he's talking about because you can't see it.
