I have found almost all books for learning a DAW just explain the same that the manual. SO the manual remains as the best book for learning a daw.

Last summer I read the whole manual in a day, on my vacation. And I wouldn't have my computer for another two weeks, at that time.

That's true but books tend to have more discussion around each feature whereas the manual tends to be pretty dry, just listing what features are where with the assumption that you already know what those features actually do.

I find that the easiest way to learn about Live is to start right out and create a track. Whenever you're in need, consult manual/book/YouTube.

At first this may seem a bit workflow-stopping - but you can't get a workflow going if you don't know the ins and outs! At some point you will be able to create a track, only limited by your imagination and the basic functions of a DAW.
