Q: What does .. that's worth a little tangent to drive home the purpose of an ... mean?
A: Can you include more of the text?

A "tangent" is often a little side fact or comment about a topic that is related to the main point but maybe not very important.
For example: "We were learning about the past tense in English class today, but the teacher went off on a10 minute tangent about her childhood."
-The childhood of the teacher may be related to the main topic, (past tense), but it is technically off-topic.

" To drive home" can mean "to really make you understand something." I believe it is a baseball reference actually.

I hope this makes sense
