Is there a good set of resources to summarise the rules without the fluff.

I am finding it difficult to take in all the rules and get a game going. My group won't want to listen to me read everything and would rather play and learn as they go.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Thankfully WFRP is quite easy to learn, and I imagine that you can do a tutorial session of the game the way most video games do. Often times, you can skip most of the fluff and get to the mechanics towards the end of a paragraph. Is there a specific aspect of the game that is causing you trouble? – CatLord Apr 18 '12 at 12:55
its new so i'm overwhelmed. I think a concise guide to building a dice pool would be good. a lot of the info on the cards looks the same eg. 2 banes seems to always have the same effect. also when do critical hits actually happen? ...these should probably be separate questions. I should write them up separately. – Peter Apr 19 '12 at 1:37
@Peter Your best bet is to just start asking specific questions like the ones in your comment. It's a lot easier for us to answer a focused question, and more efficient too... We can skip over the stuff you already get. – AceCalhoon Apr 19 '12 at 14:14

If you can find it, the preview adventure shipped to stores had just such summaries in it.
