The All New Compact Org Mode guide

Well, at a short 34 pages (PDF), it's definitely smaller than the 200 page manual. And it just goes to show, how much development has gone into org-mode keeping the same simplicity(well, you could argue this doc refutes that notion) but extending it do lots of other things like LaTeX publishing.

I got started on LaTeX with the The Not So Short Introduction to LATEX2ε (PDF) which convinced me to use LaTeX to prepare my reports, presentations and letters. And that's definitely longer than the 34 pages of this tutorial.

So, give it a try, it just might help you get started on org-mode.

Install any LateX distribution and look for a sample2e.tex file. That is the canonical file to use to learn LateX. Alternately google the same file name and download it.
