I was about to buy Knuth's "The TeXbook" and Lamports "LaTeX: A Document 
Preparation System", when I realized those book were quite expensive. 
This does not mean that I will not buy them, but I'd like to ask how the 
other books mentioned in the FAQ compare to the "original" TeX and LaTeX 
works? I have glanced in both books at the local library, so I have a 
vague idea of their styles and contents.

I'm a (below?) average LaTeX user, with some basic knowledge about TeX, 
so I do not look for the "TeX for Dummies" kind of book.
