looking for EXAMPLE-BASED man pages

man pages contain TOO MUCH information

where is a place where, e.g. I can look up the "find" command and see USEFUL EXAMPLES like this:

To find a file within or beneath the current directory containing "readme" in the name, type:

find . -depth -print | grep -i readme

Use google to search the 'net for 'examples' 'linux commands', and other such phrases. There are many to be found.
One good source of examples of Linux commands is 'Newbie's Linux Manual'.
