How to browse the JIRA documents?

As nobody is answering my question:

I try to find out what kind of customization I do with JIRA, then I found it's extremely hard to browse the JIRA documents. There is no table of content! All I can do is google to find a wiki page, and from there I still can't find a well organized section about the customization.
