I would like to second everything that Geoff mentioned. I don't think I've seen a better definition of what I consider to be user-friendly.

The biggest factor to me is for documentation to be *logical*. It doesn't have to be linear, but it needs to have a recognizable organization. Random topics loosely strung together (if at all) don't cut it for me.
