If you've followed Dr. Z for years (or decades, like me), much of what he covered is review of old material, but I like what he did to bring some new ideas, such as the capacity we all have to be heros, into the forefront.

Zimbardo was in command of his subject and talked with humor and passion about the potential in all of us to do good or evil. His message was inspiring.
