I'm afraid that there's currently no John documentation "for dummies",
although I think that parts of the official documentation are getting
quite close:

What is it that you're experiencing problems with?  Compiling from
source?  Obtaining a copy of your password file?  Running John?

As an option, you may consider purchasing JtR Pro for Linux:

Then you get it pre-compiled and pre-packaged along with a suitable
wordlist, and you may also pick the pricing option that includes support
and password security consulting - so we'll guide you step by step.
