About this book


Practical LaTeX  covers the material that is needed to compose everyday LaTeX documents. This accessible manual is friendly, easy to read, and is designed to be as portable as LaTeX itself. 

A short chapter, Mission Impossible, introduces LaTeX documents and presentations. Read these 30 pages; you should then be able to compose your own work in LaTeX.  The remainder of the book delves deeper into the topics outlined in Mission Impossible while avoiding technical subjects. Chapters on presentations and illustrations are a highlight, as is the introduction of LaTeX  on an iPad.
Students, faculty, and professionals in the worlds of mathematics and technology will benefit greatly from this new, practical introduction to LaTeX. George Grätzer, author of More Math into LaTeX  (now in its 4th edition) and First Steps in LaTeX, has been a LaTeX  guru for over a quarter of century.  

From the reviews of More Math into LaTeX:

``There are several LaTeX  guides, but this one wins hands down for the elegance of its approach and breadth of coverage.'', Best of 2000, Editors Choice
``A very helpful and useful tool for all scientists and engineers.''

Review of Astronomical Tools
``A novice reader will be able to learn the most essential features of LaTeX sufficient to begin typesetting papers within a few hours of time…An experienced TeX user, on the other hand, will find a systematic and detailed discussion of all LaTeX features, supporting software, and many other advanced technical issues.''
