This was probably the most effective tutorial I have ever used: https://www.amazon.com/RPG-III-400-Shelly-Cashman/dp/0878352...

Early in my consulting career, I got a gig doing RPG III and in three days got up to speed.

Not relevant to many folks these days.

I'm more interested in exposition style, rather than topics. Is there anything particular you liked about that book? I'll try to find a PDF for a looksie.

It was an unusually clear and understandable tutorial that worked well for someone not familiar with the machine. Examples that were broken down in very understandable chunks, expositions of applicable context, very clear non-jargon language.
