Taking one star off because I dozed off more than a couple of times watching these videos. The pacing for the videos are too slow. HOWEVER, I was very surprised at how much there is to know about picking fonts and what goes into typographical design. If someone's going to your website to read your sales pitch, it helps that the font is pleasing to look at!
