      • With the help of this book, you will do the incredibly simple things that all programmers need to do to learn a language:

         

        1. Go through each exercise.
        2. Type in each sample exactly.
        3. Make it run.
    • Reading and Writing, Attention to Detail, Spotting Differences
    • By going through this book, and copying each example exactly, you will be training your brain to focus on the details of what you are doing, as you are doing it.
    • Do Not Copy-Paste
    • If you copy-paste, you are cheating yourself out of the effectiveness of the lessons.
    • o me repetitive practice is natural and just how to learn something.
    • As you study this book, and continue with programming, remember that anything worth doing is difficult at first. Maybe you are the kind of person who is afraid of failure so you give up at the first sign of difficulty.
    • Maybe you never learned self-discipline so you can’t do anything that’s “boring”. Maybe you were told that you are “gifted” so you never attempt anything that might make you seem stupid or not a prodigy.
    • Go learn Lisp. I hear people who know everything really like Lisp.
    • For everyone else who’s here to learn, just read everything as if I’m smiling and I have a mischievous little twinkle in my eye.
  • @cshonea We have Max’s glove at our house. Consider this a random note.
