Depth vs Presentation Style

As a student, who has studied in many institutions and with a limited teaching experience here and there, I see depth of the matter and the delivery of presentation as two important characteristics of a professor or a teacher.

  1. When there is an option to choose between a tough book (which I call, above my intelligence level) and an ordinary book (which has its own beauty), would I choose a book that challenges me?
  2. We started seeing presentation skills as a substitute for the depth. [Embellishing/toppings on the food is good, but nutrition and taste is more important]
  1. For Me — the student: Demand always for teachers with depth and good presentations skills. If that is not available, make a conscious (very difficult) choice not to sacrifice depth at the altar of presentation skills.
