  “I have loved reading the material from this course, and despite my 75 years of studying various subjects, I have learned a lot from this course. The last lesson was particularly useful as we all find ourselves in situations where it is necessary to confront others. I learned from this course how to have a productive confrontation and it helped me confront someone from a place of caring and understanding, which helped me save our relationship. Thank you!”
