So, could you please point me to the well-organized, well-written, well-illustrated introduction to (repeat: "Introduction to", not "Detailed Reference Documentation for") the most important and useful of these new things (and the ones most changed since 5.n), --that I can order for $20 or $30 from amazon (a very small fraction of the cost of Mathematica itself) (although something that, with more savvy software developers, comes in the box with the product itself) --and can read in the evening, or on my next plane trip, or in the dentist's waiting room, or during a particularly dull meeting --and can thereby get an _overview_ --- a _roadmap_ -- a _preview_ --- of these useful new things, to let me know what I need to dig into further to meet my particular, specific needs as a user (and which of these I won't immediately need and can ignore). What? You want me to go to the Mathematica Documentation Center? Several _hundred_ tersely labeled clickable links just on the initial page? Each of which leads, not to a simple introduction, but to a complex formal documentation page with multiple further links to click? And all of which can only be read and navigated _on screen_? You and I, I'm afraid, just think differently.
