By far the COOLEST PROFESSOR at UCLA!
He is super chill, super flexible with his students. I actually looked forward to talking to him after class!
He put on some cool Brazilian music videos on before lecture started, I thought that was a nice touch.
His lectures are super straightforward, the material is very interesting and the fact that he's a great lecturer makes taking any class with him SO worth it.
GO SUMMERHILL OR GO HOME!

Here's the deal with History 8B: Summerhill is a great lecturer. He's funny and well organized and really likes to lecture. But, the readings are almost always extremely long and dense, and many of the multiple choice questions come from obscure factoids in them, not the lectures. He also missed a number of lectures this last quarter for personal reasons, and he'll tell you up front that when that happens, he will make no effort help you catch up. This class is entertaining and enjoyable, but you HAVE to do the reading. And when he gives you some possible essay questions, make sure to study for ALL of them, not just two out of three. Invariably, the one you didn't study for is the one you end up having to write.
