Where to start in Chassidus Chabad

Hello all,

With such a rich library of books from the Alter Rebbe all the way through to the Rebbe it would appear to be mission impossible!
Where does one begin? What fundamental works should one cover first and then how should one approach the rest in development order?

Looking forward to hearing the responses.

Here are two letters from the Rebbe:

ומהנכון שיתחיל הלימוד עמהם מחלק ב' וג' דספר התניא קדישא ובפרט שלבם חפץ בזה ואחרי כן קונטרס ומעין, בס' דרך מצותיך לאדמו"ר הצ"צ וכו' ואחכה לבשו"ט

בנוגע ללימוד התניא בעצמו, עצתי בכגון דא היא, להתחיל בחלק אגרת התשובה, לאחרי זה שער היחוד והאמונה, ורק לאחרי זה חלק ראשון. כן מהנכון אשר ישיג קונטרס ומעין וספר דרך מצותיך לאדמו"ר הצמח צדק, שסגנונם מתאים יותר לזה שלא הורגל כ"כ בספרי חסידות, אבל כנ"ל העיקר לראש ולראשונה שיהי' כעצת חז"ל, לבו חפץ, והלימוד יהי' בהשתדלות וכהבטחתם יגעת ומצאת.

In short, Iggeres Hatshuva, then Shaar Hayichud Vihoemuna, (The first part of Tanya,) then Kuntres Umayon and Derech Mitzvosecha are suggested.
