A good start to a broad topic

The topics covered in this lecture is but a very small glimpse of a much wider world of strategic thinking. As a new enjoyer of the medium it is my mission to amass a collection of information of the upmost quality, I feel this was a good place to begin my journey of discovery.

This is my first review and I plan to publish one on ever lecture I watch from now onwards. -D.M.
