Control Unleashed: A Foundation Seminar - DVD
« on: July 14, 2012, 02:20:30 AM »
Excellent companion to the book and I recommend it - especially if you are a visual person. There are moments of repetitiveness, though to me that just reinforces what I'm learning.

Read the book(s) before watching.

Downside: No captions. My TV also wouldn't caption the video but maybe some TVs do. I was playing the DVD on a PS3. On the 4th DVD when they are outside it is extremely hard to hear what is being said even with the TV blaring loud, however that only take up about 15 minute of a 5+ hour DVD set.

I'm glad you recommend the DVD as well as the book.  I took a leap several days ago and ordered them both.
I'm not likely to get my husband to read the book, but he'll watch the DVDs with me, so that's good.....

Thank you for this review! I have the Games Demonstrations CU DVD set as well as the book Control Unleashed, and I just ordered the CU Puppy Program book also (mainly because I was curious and because I already have most of the rest of this author's material). I wasn't sure about the seminar one you mentioned so appreciate the recommendation.

why do you recommend reading the book before watching the DVDs?  I kinda thought I would watch the DVDs while reading the book, and then watch the DVDs again....

Because the seminar really assumes you have read the book. If possible I would read, watch, then read again. The seminar is focused on how to apply what the book has taught, in real-life instances.
