Professor Leonard received considerable praise from students in this course, with frequent suggestions that he teaches 'life lessons' as much as 20th century literature. Some noted that concepts are dealt with at a fairly high level and the material is certainly not easy, but Professor Leonard's style and presentation help to make it accessible. A few suggested that limited or irregular office hours were a problem at times, owing to the popularity of the professor and the material. Regardless of minor concerns, many cite this as their favorite class to date.

One student in this course described Professor Leonard as an instructor who 'teaches beyond the text' and that seems a fair description. Students either responded very well to his holistic approach to learning or else found his approach problematic and confusing and requested additional clarification in the form of lecture notes, on-line aids, or tutorial sections. Regardless of this particular question students tended to react very well to Professor Leonard as a personality and found his lecture style engaging, even if they felt lost at times in his classes.
