What's the best way to learn Cheetah's node based material system?

Probably Tonio's (podperson) forum post from a few years ago, or if you get his book it goes pretty in depth about it. Some of the concepts are relatively common among 3d apps that use nodes, although some of them may be more specific to C3d.

I started working on a graphic poster a few years ago to give an overview, but I abandoned it as I haven't had time to work on it. I still would like to finish it at some point for myself, and then of course I would share it (should it ever be finished). The C3d material system is one of my weaker points right now.
