Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TEX has always been regarded as the most elegant and powerful system for computer typesetting. However, its widespread use, beyond academia, was hampered by its complexity. Recently, fairly good TEX implementations have come out for PCs putting TEX on the desks of many people: writers, designers, desktop publishers, engineers, and consequently, the interest in TEX has surged. What is needed at this point is a book that teaches step-by-step how to use TEX, illustrating each step by meaningful examples. This is exactly what S.v. Bechtolsheim's book does. It is a tutorial and guide for the first-time users of TEX, as well as a reference for the most experienced "TEXpert." TEX in Practice will appear as a four volume set, starting with volume 1 Basics, followed by volume 2 Paragraphs, Math and Fonts, volume 3 Tokens, Macros and volume 4 Output Routines, Tables. TEX in Practice will be an indispensable reference for the TEX community and a guide through the first steps for the TEX novice.

Book News Annotation:

The first of four volumes explaining how to use the powerful, popular, but user-haughty software for typesetting scientific and technical works. A tutorial for novices and reference for the more experienced, it walks through the elemental features, providing many examples and ready-to-use macros. The subsequent volumes will focus on specific aspects, such as fonts and tables.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
