The first one is more detailed.  I suspect neither will be what you
want.  What it tells me is that most people either want the full meal
deal (the 90+ page grub manual), or a short guide (1-2 pages cut to
the chase type of guide).  Or perhaps more accurately those who've
taken the time to write a guide didn't see the need to elaborate much
beyond a few pages.  If someone is going to take the time (and has the
desire) to go through a 30 page guide because they want to better
understand grub, then they'll just as likely go through the grub
manual and pick out the 25-50 pages from it that they see as relevant
to their situation or of personal interest.  Why write a guide that is
1/3 of the full manual for the very few who find that a 2-3 page guide
is not sufficient but the full guide is too much.
