All in all, I was incredibly pleased with the talk. Dr. Kennedy is incredibly solid in his explanations, and is a wonderful speaker. Probably not the most radical fella in the world, but a great experience nonetheless.
The talk was sponsored by the unaffiliated Harvard Book Store (thus far my favorite), and the $5.00 ticket earned me not only the talk, but also a $5.00 coupon to the book store. How's that for a deal?
