I'll echo that -- I found the reference manual, while it existed, to be 
very helpful for introducing the system and for problem-solving -- much 
more than the dictionary. It allowed one to approach CM from the 'what 
do I want to do and what are the atoms that help me get there' 
perspective -- i.e. start from the big picture and goals and move down 
towards the specifics.
