Agreed.  Is learning Scheme a subtle requirement?  Meaning that to
really understand what going on, learn Scheme.  If so, any recommended

I wouldn't say it's necessary. You'll get very far by looking at the
examples in the documentation and in the "Tips and Tricks" and
"Regression Test" documents. If you need to do something more intricate,
there are several people on this mailing list that can assist.

Is there any other documentation other than the tutorial and user
guide?  I.e., printed book?  I use GNU Emacs on Windows, and haven't
yet tackled elisp, but is Scheme and elisp similar?

See above. Scheme and elisp are both different dialects of LISP,
so there are some similarities.
