It' hard.
I don't usually find myself backtracking in a book, just so I can understand what the hell's going on, but this book has made me do it 4 times already.
It's really, really hard, but it doesn't paint itself like it was.
I just wanted something light to read on the bus, and picked a book with some random god-like figure picking binary code from an eclipse.
The book is trap, posing as an informal introduction to a relatively intuitive subject, when in fact it's much more difficult precisely B
