What people have said after hearing Peter speak:

"Peter spoke extremely well and with great wit about his various travels; and his fascinating and informative N3 and N4 Books. The ladies were spellbound and it was very difficult for Peter to wrench himself away as they in turn had so much to ask, and tell him."
