I've obviously been doing some of this thrashing; and don't recall 
seeing this link posted ever before.  Maybe that's because:

*  Mathematica 6 was released and distributed starting in May 2007

*  And this link, as of late Nov 2008, notes on its opening page

      News:

      [U]pdating the GuideBooks is taking longer than 
      predicted. So, rather than having new versions in 
      Summer 2008, the expected date is sometime in 2009.

"Sometime in 2009"!!!!  Hasn't Mathematica 6 already been replaced, as of
late 2008, by Mathematica 7?

It's a truly insane situation.
