Summary and Info
Richard Feynman said that if you cant express an idea clearly and simply, you probably dont know what you claim to know. Calvin failed Feyman's test.This book is not well-written. It is a struggle to read. The writing is awful. Compared to his other books, I'm thinking a grad student cobbled this one together. Maybe copied Calvin's notes. This, or maybe Calvin had the other books ghosted by a competent writer. I'm not sure which it is.Calvin's thesis isnt hard to grasp, but he seems to deliberately write jumbled prose with long words to explain simple concepts. Maybe its a game pedagogues play with each other so colleagues remain clueless.
