I hear this!

I love the vast detail myself, but I know not everyone does. It can be a bit of a trial to get people enthused about and involved in the setting.

I'd encourage the 'two pronged' approach that some favour. I don't think it needs to be broken into separate volumes however. Cheat-sheets, summaries, and more stuff like "What My X Tells Me" make good ways of getting useful, relevant, context across to people with less Gloranthaphilic inclinations.
