Actually, this applies to 28 - 36
Please turn humor back on. Whoever wrote 1 - 27 was funny and this made the book more enjoyable.
Please turn sci fi references back on. We are big nerds after all.
Somehow, and I wish I had better input (maybe I will later), 1-27 was easy to follow but 28 onward was hard. The cognitive chunks seemed half the size earlier in the book.
Maybe the code listings are longer, which makes the number of lines of new code to discuss greater and increases the need to page back and forth. Maybe more diagrams. Also, screen shots help.
I’m not sure what happened, but at some point I lost what we were doing and why. Hence the re-read becomes necessary.
Please turn analogies back on. The Flash was a good analogy.
I’m going to have to re-read these chapters. My comprehension after reading them isn’t as good for some reason.
The reason I liked the first chapters was that it wasn’t dry; it was easy to follow and often entertaining.
Many experts can step through / explain complex material but it’s rare that someone can make it fun,
and that’s why this book is so great.
