Default Restricted Learner's Rule of Thumb (Lecture 11)

Hello All:

In minute 23:45 of Lecture 11, the restricted learner's reasoning is based on a rule of thumb, whereby you should have 10 data points for every parameter you want to estimate in your model. Where (in the book or in the other lectures) can I find more information on the justification for this rule of thumb?
