Sony RX0 II PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX0II? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Sony makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the RX0 II offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX0II below.

This fixed lens compact camera was revealed to the public on March 26th, 2019, which means that, as of today, the camera is 1412 days old (young?). Given that the RX0 II is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Sony product line-up.
