[Scribus] Again: Tutorial

I was thinking of buying this Visual Quickstart Guide Project book, which 
quickly describes what you need to do, and not why you are doing it.  I 
think most people who are using Scribus have a penchant for understanding, 
and do not need endless amounts of "WHY" to create a flyer, brochure, book 
or whatever in Scribus.  Yes, it would be nice to have all that extra stuff 
in there, but I feel that the people putting this together should stick to 
the K.I.S.S. theory, and allow others to learn while they are playing along. 
If someone would like to add to the tutorial, what they have found, or would 
like to delve deeper into why the tutorial does whatever, than that would be 

to write a tutorial in Scribus, about Scribus, for whatever topic, could 
lead to 100s of pages trying to over explain something, when most will get 
it by doing it.
