Dr. Jackson is clear and concise in his explanations and did a great job creating a high-level overview course on a subject for which he obviously has a much greater wealth of knowledge.
I was new to network theory but the concepts were very well articulated. A whole new way of looking at what makes social relationships, favor exchange(s) and social networks work. Well worth the time.
An excellent walkthrough of the literature. I just wish there were more empirical exercises and and more hands-on work with the data and algorithms.
An excellent and very useful course. Recommend with no reserves to anyone willing to understand the world from a well structured perspective
