Carlyle also has been published in industry journals and one of his videos were used for a global conference in Asia. The video was chosen because of how entertaining and informative it was, in a format that almost anybody could comprehend. It's all about his formula for "fast, fun and easy" learning that was inspired through frustration with the existing materials that Carlyle had to learn from. The thought process was, "Why does this have to be so hard and why can't it be fun?". The word is, "Infotainment" and the name is Carlyle Frank!
