The info page doesn't explain time range operations very well either.
The info page is the primary GNU documentation for find.  This has
been on my personal TODO list for a while, though I still don't have
it listed in the official TODO file.

Yes.  I would like a good example for the ranges.  If you can add it
to the texi file as well as the man page, I would appreciate it.  But
if you supply the text, I can add it to the texi file if you don't.
Thanks for the offer.
