Can you explain in more detail what you mean?  If I understand you
correctly, I would say its not that the concise description or definition
is hard, but getting there is and so is getting a full understanding and
the implications of those descriptions and definitions.

I have read many a concise definition, that I found hard to understand,
because the road the expert took to get there and all that they forgot is
hidden and I have not yet traveled and learned from the road they traveled.
