LaTeX, which is pronounced «Lah-tech» or «Lay-tech» (to rhyme with «blech» or «Bertolt Brecht»), is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It is most often used for medium-to-large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing. LaTeX is not a word processor! Instead, LaTeX encourages authors not to worry too much about the appearance of their documents but to concentrate on getting the right content.
This book on LaTeX provides a highly useful guide for those who are beginning to learn the LaTeX document preparation system. It is designed in such a way that one can learn and master the LaTeX system without any prior knowledge of any programming language. The book, spread over eighteen chapters, contains several examples and illustrations to elucidate the fundamental concepts of the LaTeX.
