It was good, as far as it went - basically, it's a series of interviews with a couple notable scientists of the day. It was interesting, but I didn't feel like I learned very much about science, scientists, or their views; rather, I learned a little bit about each of these particular people. It just didn't feel like a very broadly applicable survey, but possibly that was never the intention.
