Hi Peter,
Thanks for sharing. I really like this series. I also like books. Though my problem is I get little retention after reading hard technical books. I'm wondering if you can share your reading process? Ex. Do you take notes? How much exercise do you do? ... etc.

Thank you,
Yu Shih

I just stuff myself with tons of random information and don't worry too much about retention. Don't force yourself to remember stuff. Neurons fire in unexpected ways and you remember things when you need them.

I take a lot of notes. I'll take a photo some time soon. I've like 1000 pages of notes.

I do as many exercises as I can. :) But only if they're interesting. I don't force myself to do exercises.
