It’s hard to know exactly what’s causing the issue for you. I think your best bet is to either:
Hey Mike — Sometimes, books don’t resonate with me based purely on circumstance / what I’m looking for in the moment.
I tend to recommend books that I think most people will enjoy regardless of the kind of “content” they’re looking for.
With that said, if it sounds interesting to you, I encourage you to give the book a try…

Hey Areeyoka —Thanks for writing.
I didn’t memorize any F2L algs, and instead tried to do it more intuitively. But, I think memorizing algs is a reasonable thing to do if it personally fits your learning style. For me, I liked to watch F2L walkthroughs on YouTube, and tried to incorporate those ideas into my solves.
