How To Read MySQL Documentation/Reference?

When going to the MySQL Documentation on mysql.com (or dev.mysql.com/doc for slightly more specifics), I find it a little bit more difficult to understand than the docs for HTML/CSS/Javascript/PHP and all of those. For example, I find the documentation for the INSERT syntax to be a bit complex:

    [INTO] tbl_name
    [PARTITION (partition_name,...)] 
    {VALUES | VALUE} ({expr | DEFAULT},...),(...),...
        [, col_name=expr] ... ]

I would love to get better at understanding the docs there, but I'm not sure where to start! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
