When was the last time you read completely through those manuals?
There's too much information all at once. And I didn't say the manuals
were bad. It's that the documentation is too dense and not organized
for learning. In other words, crappy.

It took me two days to find the diagram on my blog from Wikipedia. It
should have been one of the first things I searched for.

Don't stop where the ink does.
