Interesting... and not

I’ve always enjoyed biographies and the author wrote this one very well. I came to the end, however, wondering somewhat why we’d taken this journey. It feels existential, as I expect to forget much of it now that it’s over.

Enjoyable but not earth-shattering

A decent, good-hearted young adult novel with a few "once out of the well" too-convenient-to-believe moments that make you raise an eyebrow.

“One of the most intriguing ideas in the developmental sciences over the past decades is the phenomenon of the “J-shaped curve.”19 While observing children learning to master new skills in dozens of domains (math, writing, the arts), psychologists noticed a surprising pattern: as a learner struggles to master difficult new challenges, there is often an initial decline in skill. Errors are made on tasks that previously seemed easy, and the learner feels more “stupid” than ever before. This is the dip that forms the middle part of the “J.” But it turns out that the “stupid mistakes,” in retrospect, were nothing more than growth errors. Once the learner gets past the dip, performance rises rapidly to new heights.”
