When I started playing Paradox games, I found lets plays on youtube was the key for me to get my head around the games.

Is there any game in particular you are trying out ?

Well if your talking about Hearts of Iron, i've found that pretty bloody hard. EU on the other hand i've found much easier.

I am playing HIO3 and found the learning curve pretty steep, but these tutorials on youtube really help.

+1 to hitting youtube for play throughs. There should also be demos. Love Europa Universalis IV - just no time these days

Crusader Kings 2 is a hell of a game. Read the manual twice and watch some youtube vids to get your head around it.
