I'm on page 24 and getting tired of the technical details... Will the whole book be like this?

Laurie No, probably half of the book covers Mark's challenges. At some point, the book starts shifting back and forth between Mark and other people. But if you don't like the "how does he solve these problems" part, you won't like the book.
Daniela I'll answer my own question, 90% is technical stuff. If by page 20 you don't like it, you probably shouldn't keep reading.
