The manual, necessarily, is 
structured as a reference, 
not a text. 

The most systematic way of learning  
"intermediate" Stata is through 
StataCorp NetCourses. 

The StataCorp FAQs codify lots 
of tricks. 

The first 14 issues of the Stata Journal
included a series of columns called
"Speaking Stata" which cover a variety of 
topics. The `= ' business was discussed in 
SJ 3(2):185--202 (2003).
