"I was a Latin major in college, and a professor shared with us that the word education comes from the Latin word Educo, which means to take out of. Pete's class epitomizes that word to perfection as he--to perfection--takes so much out of the subject matter, and we as students are able to retain so much of the matter due to his presentation and professional and entertaining methods. It was a terrific experience and a great motivation to explore additional opportunities with him. Congratulations on combining learning with entertainment!"
–The late great Dick Callahan, voice of the Golden State Warriors & the Oakland Athletics
