Making it digestible

If you want to learn something, then it is not always the best idea to dive headlong into the most technical detail. It can be confusing for the uninitiated, can get boring and does not allow for playing around with concepts so easily.

Alternatively, find a summary that is in your language written for people like you. Whether it is a blog, or a friend who knows their stuff, or a book that is concisely written – Start in a place that makes sense and hints at the complexity underneath. If you are into it then you can always follow up on the theory afterwards.
