cladist guides

I don't know about an "Idiot's Guide", but you might start with this introduction at Berkeley's UCMP site:
Then if you want something more comprehensive, try the book "The Compleat Cladist"--- there is also an online version (at my alma mater, University of Kansas), and any good search engine should bring it up by typing in "compleat cladist".

Curious, could (and where could) I get papers on these two (Caud. and Micro.)?
Furthermore, is there some sort of "Idiot's Guide to Cladistics" out there
that would serve as a good intro to the whole Cladistics game? Because all it
does right now (for the most part) is rattle my brains... Thanks.

Thanks all Caleb Lewis
