It has a steep learning curve, but the quality of the resultant files is worth the effort.
At the time I learned what I needed to know from an older book, but as my knowledge expanded, and I wanted to be able to do more things the books I needed changed too.
The subject matter is quite dry, but the style is easy going and quite readable, and with a useful, well constructed index it is easy to find what you need.

Nov 10, Maureen added it. The book is great, the system seems overrated.
Is this really going to save me time in the end? Dec 10, A. Merlocks rated it it was amazing Shelves: In the late docuemnt and early 90s it was the book on LaTeX, a must-read.
It is still very useful and I use it every other day as a quick reference, but there are many new features that are not covered by this book. In particular, do not look for multimedia-related material here. Nov 12, Ryan rated it it was amazing.
