took me a while to get into the swing of the language, from there on it was a nice ride. unlike most books in the sense that this doesn't feel like it ever ends. I could continue reading it over and over, sort of like standing in the ocean with the unending waves crashing their worship onto you.

this book solidified many ideas I've already adventured. recommend it to anyone interested in thinking that trees are the smartest guys in the room.
