"Know How You Learn", the shortest section, but by far the most important. I cannot learn from video, at all. It turns into me just retyping what the person is typing and I ingest none of it. Give me low-level documentation, though, and I turn into an expert. Once I figured this out, I was home-free. Before you ever figure out how to interface new code with your computer you have to find a way to interface new code with your brain and it's just as specific in how it receives new data.
