Not-so-Quick Start Guide

Was downloading a trial version of some software this morning, when a little bit of text on the site caught my eye:

Our 35-page QuickStart Guide will get you up and going within 15 minutes.

Few observations... first, if it is 35 pages, does it really qualify as a quick start guide?  I mean, those are usually a couple of pages, maybe 5 pages tops.  Second, you think I am going to read 35 pages and set up the program in 15 minutes?  Maybe spend 30 minutes reading it, and then I'd be able to actually set up the program in 15 minutes.
