A good reference book to learn everything you want to about LaTeX. It contains some details which are not always quite easy to find through a web search, but it obviously requires that you already know what you're looking for.

However, I can just as well recommend you start with the free e-book The Not So Short Introduction to LaTeX before you throw money into buying this book.

One of the best LaTeX reference books out there right now. It tries to cover a lot of ground, so it may not have depth in every area. It does get me on the right track almost every time. The examples in this book are quite good and more usable than other LaTeX books I have used.

I found this a great resource both when I was initially learning LaTeX and later when I was trying to use it more efficiently. The book really shines when you are trying to develop your own typesetting or to create your own sections, etc.

The ultimate guide for anyone who is seriously using \LaTeX. It's abit steep, so not very well suited for absolute newbee's

Yeah... You can google up a lot of answers, but I still like this nice desk reference to be in army's reach.
