Actually, the fact that different people learn differently is now
well-known, and educators (the new, better ones) are now trying to learn
how to cope with this issue. My own experience in various fields bears
this out for me. Some people think visually, some textually, some
verbally, some mathematically, etc.
If John has trouble understanding something from a text, and needs
someone to lay it out verbally (or, as Alro Guthrie would say, "colour
8x10 photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of
each one") then I'll take him at his word. My wife is like this with our
renovations--until I can visually show her with a diagram or model, she
doesn't "get it", yet she's quite bright, with a solid career. And, to
be frank, a lot of the computer texts out there--and I'll include the
first TeX book I ever bought--are pathetic for a beginner to grasp. Many
(most?) do NOT approach the topic starting with a good
overview/background concepts chapter. Gregory's follow-up comments on
how TeX works, and how it doesn't "launch", already goes worlds beyond
the intro in most books (that is, this kind of explanation should be the
first paragraph in a textbook/manual on any topic).
Just my 1.6 cents' worth.
