The title pretty much says it all. I need to do some fMRI data analysis and I can't find any entry-level tutorials for Statistical Parameter Mapping (SPM). I've looked at some of the videos on the official SPM website, but I find that videos are not the most effective way of learning a new computerized tool -- I'm in the market for reading.

Does anybody have a go-to reference that's a bit less verbose and a bit more crash-course-y than the official manual?

The best way to learn is probably not by reading, but by doing. The SPM website contains a number of useful datasets with tutorials for various tasks.

I also find PowerPoint slides from lectures and talks useful. There are a bunch of slides on the SPM website, but you can also find more on Google by limiting your results to type:pptx.
