I agree. It's very well-written. But when getting people to convert to a
new system they often look for an excuse to fail, and having to read much
to "get off the ground" can be a barrier to acceptance. It's not that the
material isn't in the book. It's that the packaging suggests that one needs
to read the whole thing before one can start. So abstracting out enough to
do basic operations, a "quick start guide" if you will, would be a useful
thing. Even something like you'd find in a magazine review would be fine.
Just something that let's the PHB's get their head around it without having
to read the full treatment. (I refuse to stoop to asking for a PowerPoint,
though! Blech!)
