Elements 8

I am receiving elements 8 for Xmas can anyone reccomend an instruction book as I hate trying to learn from the help menu I need something simple
also will I be able to open raw files from an EP-1 in elements 8.
As an aside isn't it annoying when Olympus give a free flash for anyone buying an EP-1 now, 3-4mths to late
