Thumbs down Chapter 04 Mandelbrot set, really?..

Great book guys! Chapter after chapter, page by page was I being carried into all my studying, when all of a sudden, BAM!! You decide to come up with this Mandelbrot Try it Out. I'm telling you, my head exploded.
I'm quite persistent, so I had spent hours trying to figure out all these codes, mathematics, complex numbers involved, square roots, imaginary ant real coordinates and etc., but without any luck. Now, I consider myself far from being very smart, but I think that 99,9% of readers simply skipped this part without digging deeper. I do remember the phrase at the start of the book that the learning will be bit by bit, without huge leaps.. Yeah right.

I mean c'mon, seriously, you couldn't come up with a more easier FOR loop example?

I agree. Start with very simple examples, then slowly progress to more complex examples. No need for really big complex examples though, especially in a beginners book.

the book started so good, but as i progress further and further it gets very confusing. I'm looking for a new book, i can't study from this one.

I don't think the point of this exercise was to understand Mandelbrot math. I'm sure it was just something interesting to look at while learning C#.
