I'm interested in learning homotopical algebra (by which I mean: model categories, simplicial methods, etc.) However, I've been unable to make heads or tails of any of the "standards" (Jardine&Goerss, Hovey, Hirschorn); they seem to presuppose knowledge of the subject material. What are some accessible introductions to this subject? (+ reading paths to get to the aforementioned "classics"?)
Background: I'm very comfortable with category theory and homological algebra, am learning enriched category theory, and have had a course in algebraic topology (and am currently studying more).
