Reviews "A clear, simple, up-to-date, sometimes amusing introduction to LaTeX--brief, yet surprisingly comprehensive. Covers basics, graphics, bibliographies, indexes, slides, electronic resources, differences between old' and new' LaTeX, etc. Rich with brief but pertinent examples." -- The American Mathematical Monthly "Most beginners in LaTeX do not wish to read through a large comprehensive manual. They want a brief account which covers the essential elements of the subject. This book by Griffiths and Higham is the answer." -- George Phillips, Mathematical Institute, University of St. Andrews, Scotland "This book is playful, witty, intelligent, and extremely easy to read ... tells you what you need to know, with examples, in sensible, clear, entertaining language." -- Robert M.
