This is the first I am part of a book club that too an electronic one. The course content (Book) was available electronic format thus easy to carry and peruse. Additional reading material provided good food for thought. The instructors were extremely capable in drawing out the points of discussion helping enrich the reading experience. The course was beautifully balanced over 4 weeks giving the participants ample time to read the book (if this was their first time) and participate in the discussions. The course provider gets 5 stars because I could sit in India and enjoy being part of an international book club. It was unimaginable few years back. Loved it!
