Gaetan; I also like starting from a book. Then read the (scattered) docs and wiki when am looking for a solution to specific issues. Some projects have an official user guide that is downloadable as pdf or read online as html. I know documentation is one of the the most boring tasks for developers but its is necessary. May be we should hire someone to do the user guide. The users can donate to pay him.
