TEX, a software system created by Donald E. Knuth, sets the standard for typesetting in mathematics, science, and engineering. "TEX for the Impatient" is a handbook that arose from the need to help technical writers learn TEX more quickly -- and once having learned it, to find fast answers to common questions. Clear, concise, and accessible, this book is organized for easy retrieval of information, thoroughly indexed, and carefully designed for learning by example.

I have found TEX for the impatient the best guide for help on plain TeX. There is a good index, and a quick consultation should allow the user to do almost anything desired.
Since it was written in 1990, there is nothing on hyperlinks -- but that's another subject.
