"How generous he is with his real life experience. The no-BS part. I like the idea that someone is accomplished enough in his craft to generously share his real life knowledge, combined with the 'feeling' of it as well. He's not just stating facts, he's sharing nuggets of gold from a career of decades."

"… seeing a master of a craft discussing amazing accomplishments, and how and why he did it and what we can learn from it. And seeing the person behind it. He doesn't make it mysterious or tells it in a way to just make himself look good. He really wants us to understand and learn."
