Table of contents
First of all, before you start with GDPR you must have read the GDPR text.
It’s not as bad (you mean: legalese) as you might suspect.
GDPR official text
You might want to have it a bit more condensed to start.
Vocabulary / Grammar
Do not get confused: European Council vs Council of the European Union vs Council of Europe

GDPR Table of contents
Once you get through the legal texts… you’ll quickly understand that the GDPR text itself at least lacks 1 important thing: A table of contents (TOC).
This TOC by Intersoft Consulting might help: bookmark https://gdpr-info.eu/
It provides a nice overview of the GDPR Recitals (= reasons the articles of the GDPR have been adopted).
There are 173 recitals, the and the TOC provides a quick topic overview at https://gdpr-info.eu/recitals/.
Also the site provides an overview of the GDPR structure
