This is always one of the reasons which developers look while learning a language ;)
Yeah. I try to. I try to talk about the kinds of problems that a particular language is well-suited to solve. The book also solves a nontrivial problem in each language by the end, and those problems tend to be in the power zone for each of the languages. So I think the approach works well for me.
Thanks for your question.
