I picked it up recently. I haven't had a chance to really dive in, but it does look like they did a nice job with the combination of video tutorials, and tutorial scenarios to get you into the game. I just received To the Gates of Richmond: The Peninsula Campaign as a gift, so maybe that will push me to start playing.
I also picked up the reworking of his WWII air combat games with Eagle Day - Bombing of the Reich. I've been reading Duel of Eagles to go along with the game.
