That kind of thing treat an arbitrarily long list of topics, since it
picks one more or less at random on each invocation.  One useful tip
in the first 5 or so and the user is hooked.  A tutorial devoting the
equivalent of a half-page to a page (occasionally more) to a single
topic can't work that way, it's only going to hold the reader's
attention so long, and after that they will put it away permanently.
