Not sure what you're counting as the traditional manuals, but here are some
learning resources:

* the onboard Emacs tutorial (learn by doing): C-h t
* the onboard Emacs manual: C-h r
* the EmacsWiki Web site:

  One of the first sections on the main EmacsWiki page is
  a set of links to pages for Learning About Emacs. These
  are some of those learning links:


#1 is the place to start.
#2 answers your question more generally, mentions books, tutorials...
#3 is Emacs information of various kinds
#4 explains Emacs jargon

Others will no doubt chime in with more help. This mailing list is a good place
to ask questions, as is the Emacs wiki.
