Depends how specific your layout requirements are and the kind of document you want to produce. LaTeX is pretty straightforward really, but you don't really have the fine grained control that other document formats have, so if you have exotic layout requirements it's going to be annoying.
http://stp.lingfil.uu.se/~zrajm/nerd/LaTeX/quickguide.html is a good enough start. You don't need to know all of that.
