This text gives the impression that it was written using a formal and slightly authoritative voice, as though a teacher had written it. This impression stems from the use of personal pronouns such as “you”/“your” which are used in examples to demonstrate a point, just as a teacher would address you directly when expanding upon any given concept.
The text is easily understood yet formal enough to be taken seriously, while anecdotes used to illustrate a point are simple yet vary enough to keep the reader engaged, which makes for an interesting read.
