User Review - Flag as inappropriate

I actually have the 4th edition (2004) of this book, which isn't currently listed in Google's book search. This book provides good, broad coverage of the features available in LaTeX. It can answer most of the questions that occur on a day-to-day basis when using LaTeX.
