PLAI does not expect you to already know the word "environment" or
phrase "environment cache".  Rather, it *teaches* you what these mean.
 It is self-contained.  You have to work through it patiently.  If you
jump around in the book instead of reading it and working through it
methodically, you will indeed be confused and intimidated.  The book
holds no demons if you proceed methodically, implementing everything
every step of the way (and testing it well).
