Practical LaTeX covers the material that is needed for 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 then should 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 Gratzer, 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." -Amazon.com, 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." -Reports on Mathematical Physics.

LaTeX is the premiere software system used for presenting technical information. It is considered the system of choice for writers in mathematics, the sciences, computer science and engineering who need to present formulae and technical information in a clear and elegant manner. It is also increasingly used by non-technical writers interested in superior printing and document presentation. However, users of this ubiquitous software need to know much more than how to use basic style files or LaTeX commands. They need to know how to integrate Tex - the original version of LaTeX - with other commercially available software and hardware. People also need clear, accurate and brief instructions and solutions to many common problems. This book is intended to provide these valuable aids. It also explains how to use LaTex or Tex with files prepared with everyday office software such as Lotus or Wordperfect, and how to set up software links with Acrobat and hyper-text using LaTex for Internet communication. This book is intended for TeX users, desktop publishers and technical writers.
