How do I get started with PowerShell?

My co-workers recently asked me how to get started with PowerShell.  
Many of them are still writing VBScript and I am VERY willing to help them stop writing VBScript.

Windows PowerShell Scripting


FREE E-books:


The VBScript-to-Windows PowerShell Conversion Guide

Don Jones’ "Learn 'Something' in a Month of Lunches" books are very good. 
I have this one.

Finally, The Stairway to SQL PowerShell looks like one of the easiest ways to start.
This is not meant to be a complete list because I didn't want to overwhelm them. You can always find more with your favorite search engine.
I'm hoping this post will help someone else get started with PowerShell.
