I don't agree completely. The kind of TeX makes it necessary to have
a brain working in sponge mode: recording (at least trying to do so)
everything, it could be useful in some future, even or because it is
not connected with the current problem one has. And since TeX is not
delivered from one big company it is not sufficient to rely on some
big volume, you need to research constantly. (I am trying to
understand how using UTF-8 with standard LaTeX might work, seeing
that one dead option and two alive options exist giving not much
help. Exchanging XeTeX with LaTeX is the topic, being able to do some
PDF trickery, which is much to often based on pdfTeX.) Another option
would be what the German TUG (dante) journal (Die TeXnische Komödie)
is offering: reviews of newly to CTAN submitted LaTeX packages.
Again, your brain needs to work in some sort of sponge mode ...
The problem with books is that their author(s) can't be neutral. It's
the same with us list members. No-one will have used (all) the
packages to the same extent, so we are prejudiced. And our writing
will reflect this.
