> I’ve seen vectorisation taken to the extreme, with negative consequences in terms of both speed and readability, in both Python and MATLAB codebases, so I would suggest some discussion / wisdom about when not to vectorise. 

I agree and there is actually a warning in the introduction about readability vs speed with an example showing a clever optimization (by Jaime Fernández del Río) that is hardly readable for the non-experts (including myself).
