Hedge Fund Strategies: Overwhelming Volume, no structure

Anyone else find the Hedge Fund Strategies reading a bit overwhelming? It’s just endless endless verbosity, details, minutia about 15 strategies that are very open-ended and can vary in hundreds of ways. I’m puzzled as to why they dedicated 100 pages (4% of the entire curriculum) to get into so much detail on this topic. And the reading lacks any structure whatsoever, despite the apparent attempt to have it. Tough to even take notes on it let alone figure out what they are attempting to test on it. Brutal.
