Par Dave Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com

Pocket Review: *The* bible to keep on your desk if you use LaTex.

I love type. Ever since I got into computers, back when high resolution was a 132 column printer, I've tried to find ways to play with typesetting and fonts. I wrote a basic layout system in OMSI Pascal that drove daisywheel printers. I got to be quite an expert at nroff and troff. I used to hunt (without success) for a free copy of Scribe. I played with Lout, and a dozen other packages. But nothing, ever, held a candle to TeX when it comes to the quality of the output it produces.

Ignore for the moment some of the uglier fonts than some TeX users employ, and look instead at the pages. Hold them up at a distance and admire the uniformity of the gray: no rivers of white to be seen. Look at the bottoms of the page: if the typesetter didn't totally goof off, they'll be vertically balanced: an open spread is
the same height on both pages (TeX'll add tiny amounts of leading to make it happen). Dig into the line-breaking, and you'll find optimization algorithms, which shuffle words back and forth trying to minimize the <em>badness</em> of the appearance.

The output of TeX gives me a lot of pleasure.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for its input. Don Knuth is clearly a genius, but as with all wizards, his creations can be tricky. In the case of TeX, we have a typesetting engine driven by a macro processor whose interpretation of syntax can be changed while it is in the middle of processing individual commands. Raw TeX is scary to deal with, so people don't deal with it. Instead, they use its power to write macro packages, abstracting the low level commands into something more palatable (and tractable). The most widely used of these is Leslie Lamport's LaTeX. LaTeX is at its heart a logical mark up system, documented in an admirably short and lucid book, <em>LaTeX: A Document Preparation System.</em>

But when you want to use LaTeX to do serious work, you need more than this small book. When you want to set complex tables, or handle floating material a certain way, or get your index looking just right, you need the real scoop. And you turn to just one book.

The original <em>LaTeX Companion</em> was one of those books that never got returned to my bookshelf. I used it almost every day for 4 years during the typesetting of five books. Thanks to its wealth of detail, I was able to create press-ready files straight from my computer to the exacting specification of the production departments of three separate printers.

But now, that worn old book has been retired. Mittlebach and Goossens have
produced a second edition of <em>The LaTeX Companion,</em> and it's better in every possible way. In the ten years since the first was published, a lot has changed, and the book captures it all. New packages, improvements in encodings, font handling, xindy: the book describes it all. My copy arrived a couple of weeks before
Mike Clark's <em>Pragmatic Project Automation</em> book was due to go to the printers. I devoured it, and immediately used its advice to improve the appearance of ragged-right text, fix up some font issues in the code listings, and improve the handling of included graphics. Since then, it's been a true companion as I've worked with the typesetting of the new edition of <em>Programming Ruby</em>.

I don't often gush, but if you use LaTeX, or if you'd just like to produce great looking typeset output, you owe it to yourself to get this book.

Par PAUL A. Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have been a TeX/LaTeX user since 1982, and have authored several classes and styles (newlfm). I just got my copy of the new The LaTeX Companion (2nd Edition). I just love it!! Why? 942 pages of text, 94 pages of the index (YEP!), wonderfully clear examples, 136 pages on fonts, a whole appendix on debugging, 72 pp on mathematics, etc. The book is well-written and uses clearly distinct fonts for user commands, internal commands, etc. There are 138 pages about fonts. In the mathematics chapter, there are 104 examples in the Math chapter alone; one REALLY COOL section shows 10 different font choices and their impact on the typesetting of a small page of mathematics. HOT STUFF!!
In short, there is only 1 limitation to the book: It does not have LaTeX/TeX lion on the front. That is hard to accept. However, everything else is really good. I highly recommend this.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Outstanding Book 30 octobre 2004
Par Torsten Rohlfing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is, by far, the most useful book I own. The first edition was great, the second edition is nothing short of spectacular. The two-color print is very helpful. Compared to the first edition, which I've been using for just about seven years, the updated package descriptions in the new edition improved my typesetting substantially within only a few days after I got it. Well worth it's price. I hope the authors make a good buck on this, since they are making my life so much easier.

The stated intention of the book not withstanding, I think this is all you'll ever need to use LaTeX, no matter how serious a user you are. Well, maybe a two-page primer of the basic commands in addition. Anyway, I've never used Kopka's book and I never touched Lamport's. Not because they're bad, but because I never had to.

The one small issue I have with the second edition: where did the cute pooch on the cover go?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of *Current* Edition (the second edition) 23 août 2004
Par B. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The second edition of The LaTeX Companion is a thorough rewrite of the first edition. If you're seeking a single source for improving your LaTeX documents (in ways you never imagined), this is your book. It is really a tour de force in technical documentation and clearly a labor of love from its numerous authors. The extensive coverage of packages and the examples are very useful. In addition, every example is provided in the CD that comes with the manual. The CD also includes a complete LaTeX installation. You will not find a better text for working with LaTeX and I highly recommend it.

PS I've been using LaTeX since 1990 and am familiar with all the principal manuals.

I'm in the throes of writing a large report and decided to use LaTeX to handle the document processing for me. (Yes, I should be working, but I decided to take a respite and write this review!) I use LaTeX all the time to produce the short documents necessary for teaching classes, so I'm literate. But this is the first large writing project I've managed entirely in LaTeX.

This review refers to the second edition of "The LaTeX Companion."

It's difficult to write a review beyond "This is a great book--buy it!" There is so much contained within The Companion that any review will fall short. So, allow me to take a slightly different tack. I have two books on my desk right next to my workstation. Lamport's "LaTeX: A Document Preparation Guide, 2nd Edition" and Mittelbach, et al.'s "The LaTeX Companion, 2nd Edition." (My discipline-specific texts and papers are scattered all over everywhere--typical professor mode.) I use Lamport's book for quick reference for math symbols and table setup (Lamport is much less hefty...) and The Companion for reference on everything else. The Companion is full of details necessary to get "the details" right.

The Companion is well-written, well-indexed, well-organized, and contains a compilation of information not available anywhere else for users of LaTeX. You will not be able to use the packages and extensions necessary to make the writing job easier without The Companion. Trust me--if you are writing using LaTeX, then you need this text for access to instructions for using the packages necessary, and desirable, for production of technical text.

I cannot imagine developing another complex document without LaTeX and the two texts I use. A actually have two copies of both texts (LaTeX and The Companion), one at the office and one at home. I can't imagine writing in LaTeX without them both. But, if I had to chose just one book, I'd have to chose The Companion. It's that simple and that necessary.
