DF----just keep at it, but I caution you, don't let yourself get caught up in a multitude of other personal "versions" of the ZS, that will bind you up like cheap government cheese.
Big +1 on this, and also Stephen's advice to simply keep at it. It really isn't all that complicated. I also have to second what CPorter says about Adams's writing. I have never understood what people find so bewildering about his writing. I have read many books on the subject and still find his description the clearest.
