Thanks for the compliment.

I agree with the guide being well written. Once I see an example or
figure one out (not always hard to do, but sometimes), I think: "Hmm ah
yes, actually that was sort of in the guide …". Perhaps I am a different
kind of learner or too used to the "example culture" in other languages,
where you can find almost everything on StackOverflow.

Of course examples would be nice to have, not going to argue against that.
