Comments about oreilly Data Science with Microsoft Azure and R:

The material is informative and well-organized. So for the sake of getting the information, it's good. (I got it at 50% off.) However, the speaker is irritating to listen to. Every other sentence ends with an upward intonation, like a question (or a valley girl). It's driving me nuts, and I'm only on #8 out of 72 clips. He also always mispronounces "etc." as "EK-cetera", which makes me wonder how careful he is in anything else he says. (It's "et cetera", Latin for "and other things".) I wonder why O'Reilly doesn't do some sort of proofing of the first sections before the whole thing is recorded, so the delivery problems could be corrected.
