Question New User - Confused of Chichester

Can anyone recommend a good book/guide/manual for this camera? I was really confident using my Nikons but am struggling with this (although I'm sure I will get used to it). The only one I have found is "Supercharging the Olympus OM-D E- M10" by W.N Green, and it is not very good. He assumes that readers will understand all his acronyms and although he suggests what to do he doesn't say why.

It's not great but if you've not got a convenient way to view the PDF a printed manual is helpful. I bought mine Mki copy from this seller.

Re: New User - Confused of Chichester

Glad I'm not the only one. Nikon, Canon and Fuji stuff is all easy to get to grips with but the Olympus manual isn't up to the job for such a complex/ unintuitive camera. I love it though so I'm chasing up all the forum posts to clarify the grey areas. If I find anything really good that's not already mentioned I'll post it.
