Why was this closed as off-topic? This book is indispensible for the casual or serious LaTeX style writer. The long-overdue second edition is nearly twice the length of the first edition with many updates and additions among which are an expanded bibliography and index and a section showing the same text set in a variety of different font families.
Level: Intermediate While TeX has no native graphics component there are a large number of packages and tools that have been developed to fill this gap. These include the standard graphics packages for including graphics files, Metapost, pstricks using the power of Adobe's PostScript language , xy-pic very good for arrow-theoretic diagrams , and specialized packages for chemistry, physics, engineering, music, and chess, to name only a few.
If all you need is to include a few of EPS figures, then this book may be overkill, but for those who want drawing tools more powerful than a simple graphics editor, this book will prove quite useful. Note that all the packages and programs described in the book are freely available and without cost.
The Second Edition nearly doubles the length of the original. It drops the chapters on PostScript fonts and drivers but the authors have made the excised chapters available online. It more than triples the coverage of Metapost to pages. More reference than exposition, I wore out a copy during my TeX formative years. Each concept and command is explained in a separate entry with many helpful examples. Imagine a stripped-down and simplified The TeXBook.

These include the standard graphics packages for including graphics files, metapost, pstricks using the power of Adobe's PostScript language , xy-pic very good for arrow-theoretic diagrams , and specialized packages for chemistry, physics, engineering, music, and chess, to name only a few. Level: Intermediate Update: There is a new edition with a slightly different title.
I will review this edition shortly, but in the meantime here is the site link. Topics include a quick introduction, creating bibliographies, marking up an index, including EPS graphics, and a very thorough presentation on typesetting mathematics including using all the neat AMSLaTeX alignments. There are extensive symbol and command tables in the appendices and even some information on customization.

In the distiller select Settings Job Options as shown in the first image - Next, under "General" tab, set paper size to Letter 8.
