You can get al lot out of the ``Not So Short Guide'' but in the long  
run you should get a real book to use as light/heavy reading (:-))  
and reference. I'd get ``Guide to LaTeX,'' 4th Edition, by Kopka &  
Daley. For deep detail into many packages and making LaTeX do things  
differently I'd go with ``The LaTeX Companion,'' 2nd Edition, by  
Mittelbach, Goosens, Braams, Carlisle & Rowley (no et-al here! I like  
to give credit where credit is due). Both are very well written and  
fit complement each other very well.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
