Published Aug 24, 2007 by Addison-Wesley Professional. Part of the Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting series. The series editor may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. This attractively priced boxed set brings together four leading books on the LaTeX software system for typesetting documents, covering all you need to know about LaTeX. Because LaTeX is especially good for technical documents and is freely available for almost any computer system, it has become a lingua franca of the scientific world. The first book in the set, Guide to LaTeX, 4/e, shows you how to begin using LaTeX, and also serves as a handy reference. The next three books, whose authors have taken a lead role in the development and dissemination of LaTeX's most recent versions, are The LaTeX Companion, 2/e, The Latex Graphics Companion, 2/e, and The LaTeX Web Companion. They provide further information on tools and techniques available for more complex typesetting needs, for incorporating graphics into documents, and for publishing technical text on the Web. Whether you are new to LaTeX or want to be sure that your LaTeX library is current and complete, you will find a useful place for this set on your reference shelf.
