Aiui p6doc, Carl's "programming fundamentals" and "an adventure game", and maybe Gabor's "Starting again with Rakudo Perl 6" do not assume P5 knowledge. But really, if you want to get in to P6 at the moment you pretty much have to be willing to join the IRC channel.
We have some pythonistas now hacking the P6 core. They somehow got up to speed...
