any resources with more details/examples than K-X manual?

Hi,
I'm plan to go through the entire K-X manual and try out all features my camera has. However the manual is very 'manually', I'm looking for something with more details, examples, photos etc.
I know there's a few artciles on this Pentax sites with what I'm looking for (e.g. Pentaxuser.co.uk article- 'To B or not to B http://www.pentaxuser.co.uk/article/to-b-or-not-to-b--that-is-the-question-278)but is there any websties/books etc with similar for all features the camera has?
Cheers,
Pa.

Yvon is a dedicated Pentax user and writes a good extended manual. The ebook price is great too.

I have purchased the K20D "ebook", and it is quite detailed. One thing to note however is if you want to print out any of the pages, there is a huge watermark diagonally across the pages. It isn't there when reading the book on your computer, but is there if you want to print. I emailed Yvon about this and he said it could not be removed, and he did not have any printed copies left. I would have preferred to have both ebook & the printed version.

I purchased the K-x book. There are a lot of typos but for the price I'm not going to complain. I'm a noob to photography and the K-x. I learned a few things from the book that the manual didn't cover. I'd recommend it.

Did the K-x not have a watermark when doing a print preview? Just curious as the K20D one did not have it when looking at it on the computer, but did have when doing a print preview.
