Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"The author lays a clear structure to guide the newcomer through the process of preparing a text with LaTeX…. Besides the comprehensive index at the end of the book, there is a useful Quick Finder at the beginning of the book; the reader can hardly get lost. The book fulfills the claim of the title…. With its clear structure and the well-organized index and quick finder [it] may also serve the more experienced TeXie as a reference." ―Zentralblatt Math 

"Fortunately, there are some excellent books for learning LaTeX. Grätzer’s book is one of these superb books. Readers who work through this book are likely to reuse it frequently as a reference while writing papers with mathematical content." ―Journal of Mathematical Psychology

“The book is very well organized, contains many practical examples and, undoubtedly, will become an indispensable tool for a novice who is in a hurry to write his first LaTeX paper.”―(REVUE D’ANALYSE NUMÉRIQUE ET DE THÉORIE DE L’APPROXIMATION)

Format: Paperback
This rather inexpensive book is an excellent introduction to LaTeX and AMSLaTeX. While the author boasts that a friend of his typeset a mathematics article in one weekend with a copy of the book manuscript--a dubious claim that could not possibly be true except for the simplest of articles--it is still a nice first book on the macro language. In a lot of ways it is like "Learning LaTeX" and has similar coverage. I like that one too. If given the choice, I'd have to pick one of these two or Diller's book to start. Diller, though longer and more comprehensive, is just as easy to understand and may be the choice for the person with needs more ambitious than producing that weekend article.

This is basically just a subset of Gratzer's larger book. Not to say this book isn't good, but it's worth spending a few extra dollars to get the complete book.

Definitely very helpful booklet for starting up in LaTeX and this book teaches you how to write LaTeX document in very efficient and neat way, while the book is less than 100 pages (excluding appendixes and indexes)!!

The book is less than 100 pages which means you can grasp the basic idea of LaTeX in 3 days if you are working on it pretty hard.
Great book if you want to learn LaTeX!
