I always presumed I liked him I really liked I remember being amused by his welcome to life video years ago, but I keep on finding videos of him explaining that there are exceptions to a rule that he presents really badly.
They all go the exact same way
"This is a thing that is understood by this quite simple concept but there is an exception to the rule, but then there is another exception to the rule, but then there is THIS exception to the rule, but then all that is fine, but there is an exception to the rule, and once you've understood all that there is an exception to the rule, so in conclusion it is this but then there is an exception to the rule."
None of the exceptions seemed that hard to wrap my head around, in fact he has done it for fields I've worked in, but his presentation is as if he were revealing some daunting truth that you should never even bother trying to understand in the first place like niche knowledge were some sort of elder god that must not be disturbed from it's slumber at any cost. This is a prime example
I think my problem is I don't like it when authors repeatedly produce video essays that follows the same structure, it feels like he went out of his way to try make the thing sound more complicated and dramatic just because that is the way he puts on a performance. I think his style actually discourages learning, as he makes things sound like these things are too intimidating to even try.
