I actually only learned about the books from this mailing list. A new 
user won't usually read the entire menu. They will just scan it.
To get started with Maven on the website, I only read the documentation 
links under "User Centre". I think it would be a good idea if at least 
the "Getting Started Guide" had one sentence at the very end that went 
something like "To find out more about Maven, check out the <a 
href=...>books</a>!" Then, at least everybody who checks out the Getting 
Started Guide at least KNOWS that there are books ;-)

Meanwhile, one doesn't necessarily have to buy a book to learn about the 
Maven lifecycle. This is also explained on the website:
http://maven.apache.org/guides/introduction/introduction-to-the-lifecycle.html
A link to the Guides index (guides/index.html) at the end of the Getting 
Started Guide would also be a good idea, for the same reasons.
