I do agree that reduce isn't that complicated but I was trying to just explain (which I may have done badly) that instead of using reduce its often better to avoid it and using something simpler to understand. For example using .sum is a lot better than using reduce because it's self descriptive in what it does.

That doesn't mean there isn't a usecase for reduce I'd just use it sparingly. But of course that's just my opinion!
