A decent short punchy listen

covers some good tips and models, and the running time is perfect for a short listen on the go, i feel you'd need to have learnt about the models preciously before listening, but they are summerised very well.

some of the examples are a little be corny and cumbersome, and the delivery is quite flat, but given the running time its not an issue.

useful little listen to invest 1 credit in.
