It shows up in my mailbox a couple times a month. It seem there are at least 100 or more classes you can purchase on DVD or CD format from about $59.95 to $149.95 on a myriad of subjects. I am tempted each time I get this catalogue to breakdown and purchase one to listen to in my car. Some of the titles crack me up like "Consciousness and Its Implications" with the first lecture titled "Zombies" or "No Excuses: Existentialism and the Meaning of Life". I imagine Mel Brooks making a spoof class on DVD with dancing flesh eating Nietzsche's running around. Seriously, the endorsers make statements like "Its breath-taking the change these lectures can make in your life." (Bob Schieffer) and the mailbag is filled with people that regret ever holding back from buying these classes. Someone even goes as far as stating they enjoy their insomnia. Wow that's a stretch I am sure. Never-the-less I have not yet tried a course but as soon as I do I will report back and let you know what I think.
