I just downloaded a book with title Think Complexity from greenteapress.com. When I was reading the preface section, I was trying to understand the motivation that drive him to wrote this book. He wrote this book is due to the reason of boredom and fascination.
When the message reached me, I translate it into this form: boredom of weekend, and fascination of the book. This is true. I love theory and prove, hope this book could greatly improve on my problem solving skills.
