Format: Paperback
This is a nice book for LaTeX beginners to get up to speed. Consider this an updated The LaTeX Companion, but with less coverage on different packages and written in a more tutorial-like style. Like all new books about technology, it has the advantage of being able to cover recent developments like Prosper (a package for preparing slides) and Omega (multilingual capable TeX).
My only real gripe about this book is its Chapter 10, where the authors discuss the multilingual typesetting. They include many exotic languages including Breton, Cherokee and even Esperanto! But there is zero coverage on Chinese when there are mature packages for TeXing in Chinese... (I also need to mention that there are some printing problem with this book. But those are mostly minor annoyances. Look at the errata list.)
As of this writing (April 2003), this is the book that I will recommend to new LaTeX users. And even if you already have some other books on LaTeX, this book can still be a refreshing read but I would not consider this a must-have.
