Where should I start?

Hello all. I’m sure someone can help me here. I just inherited a 31’ sailboat and would like to learn to sail it. I have been on the boat a few (four) times and have a very basic understanding of sailing. My question is how should I approach learning to sail this boat? I have been told everything from go by a book to hire an instructor for a few days. I have also been told that this is too much boat to handle for a beginner and I should learn on something half the size. I just want to get some input from some people who know sailing. Thanks.
