Read from August 30 to September 21, 2010

Spreading out my reading of this book over five weeks certainly dampened the effect of it. The first part I mostly got, but the technical stuff confused me. Unless you are of greater mental capacity than a somewhat intelligent (hopefully) high schooler, skip part three.

Reread 10/10/12. Understood a lot more. Use what you know is wrong to determine the negative space around what might be right.
