I should have told you about this book a long time ago. The LaTeX Companion is the definitive guide to LaTeX, ideal for anyone using it on a daily basis (or almost, as I do) or anyone wanting to learn LaTex. LaTeX is a complex and sophisticated mark-up language aimed at producing better typography for mathematics and scientific work—in which it totally succeeds. As for Linux, LaTeX (and TeX) comes in many distributions, some more geared toward the humanities, other for science, and still other for exquisite “art” typesetting.

A must read for graduate students.
