We’ve Improved the Site, Thanks to Your Suggestions

A lot of people asked to be able to download an entire course all at once, instead of one lecture at a time. You’ll notice that this option is now available on each course page, at the bottom.

If you do choose this option, though, don’t forget that each of the individual lecture pages, which this option now allows you to bypass, has links to recommended readings, Power Points, and things of that nature, so be sure you don’t miss those.

I am incredibly impressed.

Wow! I have always been studious, yet I do not recall learning any of this as a child. I am loving the material.

- R.D.

I now even find myself constantly correcting my own textbooks. This resource is invaluable!

- J.L.

Tom Woods and company should have their heads examined for practically giving away college level lectures on real history.
