    "If you want an in-depth understanding of LaTeX you can start somewhere else. However, if you want to really understand TeX then there is no way to avoid the great Texbook..."

    This is the main book to read for TeX in my opinion.

    Buku ini lucu karena disertai ilustrasi-ilustrasi yang menarik. Awalnya aku menemukan buku ini di perpustakaan Matematika. Lalu berkat aku kenal teman yang anak Matematika, aku bisa membawa buku ini pulang. Belakangan baru aku menemukan buku ini di salah satu lab ku. Aku membaca buku ini karena pada saat itu aku ingin belajar mengetik menggunakan format LaTeX. Wah, buku ini terlalu pusing untuk belajar, jika yang diharapkan adalah "how-to". Buku ini banyak bercerita. Akhirnya aku bisa juga menge Buku ini lucu karena disertai ilustrasi-ilustrasi yang menarik. Awalnya aku menemukan buku ini di perpustakaan Matematika.

    Going full on five stars, as I know I will read this again. And probably again. It truly stands as a testament to how I wish computer manuals were written. That said, it is clearly in the realm of book where you know if you are the target audience if you have even found it. Not something that just comes up on a random walk through the book store. Highlights for me included a selection of exercises that I could mostly accomplish, a perspective on how the interaction with the program is an iterative Going full on five stars, as I know I will read this again.

    So hard to rate: an excellent tutorial, a wretched reference manual.

    I've more skimmed through it than read it. It's pretty advanced and I don't think it'd be very useful for a basic tex user, but I really liked the humorous voice of the narrator, or so to say.

    A documentation for a program couldn't be done better than Knuth does it for his. Clearly explained and engaging.

    One of my favorite tech books ever. The book is like Felini's 8 1/2, an self-referential and multi-readable journey through elegance in typography.
