"This substantial book is definitely not for the faint-hearted, nor for those looking for an introductory text. Designed for serious TEX experts, it contains a mine of information about managing TEX systems and using TEX for complex jobs involving graphics and unusual fonts. The book's 15 chapters break down conveniently into three sets, providing info on installing and running TEX, LATEX, and MetaFont, font installation and selection, and graphics. The book provides copious examples throughout. Several of its chapters have appendices summarizing the commands of a relevant package, and the book ends with a comprehensive list of 'sources and resources' and a 25-page index. 'TEX Unbound is the ideal resource for anyone interested in the full power of TEX and LATEX." - Computing Reviews, Aug 1999
