The Introduction gives us The Canticle of the Dragon and a it of blurb about Krynn and Ansalon. There are themes here that should also apply to Taladas, but most of this is stuff that does not relate to anywhere outside of Ansalon. (I wonder if there is a similar poem that tells the story of Taladas.)
The Ages of Krynn are great, but the legends about these ages would be different in Taladas. (I wonder if the people of Taladas even use the same ages, or if they describe the past differently.)
The World of Krynn section needs to be re-written from the point of view of Taladas being the "home" area and Ansalon being the "other place".
The People of Krynn section is good. It tells you the sort of themes that a Taladas campaign should also have. There might be different "Civilised Races" and "Things of the Wild" but those two broad categories should apply to Taladas.
The Campaign is something I think is a vital part of Dragonlance. Taladas needs to be it's own thing, but it should also focus on Epic Fantasy, Conflict of Good and Evil and the Influence of Krynn's past. Things work differently in Taladas, but the gods are still there, with good and evil battling and things like The Cataclysm effect the entire world.
Where to Begin is good generic advice. Someone playing a 3e Taladas campaign probably needs to look at the same books, along with James O'Rance's netbooks.
