My very personal stand on this is that prelude and Starter kit
are good options when someone wants to discover Emacs, but can
sometimes get in the way: if something goes wrong, you are not
sure who to blame, the modified setup or Emacs.

My "teaching/helping" IRL experience is that people start with
a Starter Kit because they are afraid of the Beast, sometimes
for no good reasons. It's better to simply play by the rules:
that way, when something goes wrong, the odds are greater to
understand what and why.
As for a gentle introduction with a wide scope on E&Om, I don't
think there is such a thing... sadly.
Good luck to your friend!
