Making some headway on Rust

I've recently been working my way through “the book”, mostly because I've just been curious to see what all the excitement around rust has been about. My first experiences with Rust have been a little frustrating because they seemed overly academic (which pushed me away from other languages like Haskell) and I was expecting “the book” to be kind of a dense slog through the language.

I am pleasantly surprised that the book is written in a very casual and beginner friendly way. I just got through chapter 3, but so far I am really enjoying the experience. Good job, Rust book authors.
