Fool's guide to FIND

Can anyone point me to such a thing? With examples?  Don't reply 'man find' 
until you read to the bottom of it!

I have a very simple task: I want to recursively find files by name (e.g.) 
*.pdf, and I am quite happy to log to the appropiatre directory to search 
down.  In most cases I know the extension, but not the name. Does anyone ever 
do a simple task like that in linux? Does it take a line the length of a sed
