“D. Gregory Smith is pretty much what the Internets were created for (by Fat Al Gore, who is Fat.) Smith gives us information, peace and insight. If you haven’t already, this is a guy who must be blogrolled.”

“ You are, perhaps, the most universally loved guest speaker I have had in 20 years of university teaching. Not one person had an even remotely negative thing to say, and that hardly ever happens. Most of the students talked about your honesty, your forthrightness, your openness and your kindness. Okay, so eventually I had to break the ice and say, “hey all of that stuff about Greg’s personality is great, but it is a little one sided. Didn’t you think he was a beautiful specimen of a man as well as being smart and funny and insightful?” Oh yeah – I got heavy head nodding on that remark.
The young man who filmed your talk – who is a documentary journalist – said that he rarely saw an audience so attentive. He also said that he noticed some closed off facial expressions and postures when you first arrived, and that those people just slowly lightened up and became completely absorbed in your talk.
What can I say? You do such good work.”Annie Sondag, PhD, CHES Professor, Health Promotion Department of Health & Human Performance The University of Montana – Missoula, MT
