I'm reading a book right now (Real-World Cryptography - Manning Publisher[^]).

In chapter 3 it provided a code example of how to generate a MAC (Message Authentication Code) using Rust.
It didn't give the crates (import libraries) that were required. Hmmm | :| (I'm slow, I need everything.)

Also, the example was two functions for generating and then reading the MAC but there was no example of the input (I'm slow, I need everything).

Which brings me to my point.
Do you notice that books get you so far into a subject (about 1 - 3 chapters) and then they get so far out there that you cannot move on further? You're just stuck. The author has left me behind. (I'm slow, I need everything.)

So I have a lot of books that I read first 3 chapters & then fall into oblivion. (I'm slow, I need everything.)
Well, that is my experience. Does that happen to you?
