I have not read those, or heard of them, so thank you for the recs - I'll check them out! (Or, I guess, I'll add them to my endlessly growing wish list of books to read.) ETA: Looks like our library has a bunch of his books, including those! I guess I need to make a library run soon.

I just really love knowing how things work, especially things that seem opaque at first but become clear once you have the trick to it - to me, that's the real magic, the moment that something goes from "that's impossible" to "oh, THAT'S how it's done!" Like pulling a single thread on an intricate structure and having the whole thing collapse into a different structure.

I have a similar problem with difficulty parsing technical explanations, though. It's not something that comes easily to me, especially trying to parse math and spatial relationships.
