My first lecture, George Clooney, I'd decided to attend alone. My adult, Wall Street, son from another city, heard me talk about it and invited himself as my guest. I hurried to get a 2nd ticket, still got a great seat.

My first born, I dubbed him at birth, My Nubian Prince as he is stately, intelligent, handsome, and judgmental toward anything I his mother does.

Not only did the lecture and the overall experience exceed his and my expectations he thought better of his mother’s choices and now is more willing to come to Houston for exciting things I want to expose him to. Thank you Brilliant Lectures I’ve included friends for other events including Judge Sotomayor, I’m now the person to check in with by my Houston and global buddies, you made me popular again as a Seasoned Citizen.

I went to the lecture. Yes I was upset that Prof Hawking wasn't going to be able to make it but really? HE HAS ALS! if these same people would have actually had the common sense (common sense and intelligence do differ) they would have come to see the film. When I saw him...on that screen...he looked sooo swollen:-(. ALS usually makes a person small and frail...but he was swollen and looks like he was in pain and couldn't get comfortable. Over all I was glad to have been able to see him. Some people only care about there own selfish pleasures. They don't care that one of histories' greatest minds is ill or the lengths he went through to make this happen. Thanks for the honest effort Brilliant Lectures.

I've attended many events that the Brilliant Lecture Series has hosted. I am always surprised at each event I attend and will continue to support the Brilliant Lecture Series. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical of the quality of the program when Stephen Hawking became "too ill to travel" but I can honestly say that Stephen Hawking was one of my favorite programs. Truly inspiring organization.
