I read Neduro's tire changing thread from beginning to end, before attempting my first tire change last Spring:

I have done several since, and while not fast, and not easy, no issues so far.

The best advice I found so far is:

1) if it gets really hard, stop before you break something, because you're doing something wrong, so back off, and start again.

2) putting a little air in the tube helps keep it where it belongs, and away from the tire iron.

3) keep the tire in the deep, center of the rim
