"To sum up, Grätzer book can be recommended both as a very good introductory text for beginners as well as a handy up-to-date LaTeX reference for experienced users."
―Mathematical Reviews (Review of a previous edition)
"Writing a sufficiently long math text (lecture notes, monographs) by a non-expert TeX writer wanting to produce a text of good typographical quality requires the use of a well-documented package. Grätzer’s book is a solution."
―EMS Newsletter (Review of a previous edition)
"This book is truly unique in its focus on getting started fast yet keeping it simple. It is indispensable for the beginner and a handy reference for the experienced user."
―Bulletin of the Mathematical Association of India (Review of a previous edition)
Math Into LaTeX is for the mathematician, physicist, engineer, scientist, or technical typist who needs to quickly learn how to write and typeset articles and books containing mathematical formulas, and requires a thorough reference book on all aspects of LaTeX and the AMS packages (the enhancements to LaTeX by the American Mathematical Society).Key features of Math Into LaTeX: A simple, example-based, visual approach - A quick introduction (Part I) allowing readers to type their first articles in only a few hours - Sample articles to demonstrate the basic structure of LaTeX and AMS articles - Useful appendices containing mathematical and text symbol tables and information on how to convert from older versions- A new chapter in the fourth edition, "A Visual Introduction to MikTeX," an open source implementation of TeX and LaTeX for Windows operating systems- Another new chapter describing amsrefs, a simpler method for formatting references that incorporates and replaces BibTeX data- This edition also integrates a major revision to the amsart document class, along with updated examplesAlle Produktbeschreibungen

The first objective of the book is to get a complete novice started in the shortest amount of time. This is done in Part 1, which contains all one needs to typeset a simple mathematical text. Part 2 gives a very detailed description of typesetting text and mathematics, pointing out the differences between LaTeX-derived commands and AMS-TeX codes. This is done very carefully and clearly. The structure of all sections is basically the same: overview of the contents, definitions of the commands covered, their scope, examples, typical errors (together with error commands generated by LaTeX when something goes wrong), more advanced topics. This part covers pretty much any scenario you are likely to encounter typesetting a mathematical document.
Part 3 goes into details of LaTeX document structure, including a synopsis of various document classes and how best to use them. Part 4 explains how to customize LaTeX, Part 5 treats long documents and BiBTeX, the bibliographic database. Final part, Part 6, treats LaTeX and the Web, mainly by poiting out various Web sites that can help you if you are serious about posting your work on the Web.
The book is very good at what it sets out to explain. There are, however, certain topics the author decided to leave out. There is no description of the picture environment, which although not exactly user friedly, is useful from time to time. The slide environment for producing transparencies is not described either, and I think this could have been included without too much trouble. To me this is a slightly more serious drawback than the first omission.
I give the book five stars for the following reason. This is a book that teaches you how to produce beautiful scientific manuscripts rather than how to rewrite LaTeX. The book itself is a very nice looking document, and so serves as a very good example of what is possible to achieve with LaTeX, if you follow the author's advice.
The book provides a short introduction to the overall use of LaTeX. This section is not the most exhaustive text on the topic, but provides all the fundamental information for a user start preparing a LaTeX document, assuming the user has LaTeX installed and has some basic knowledge of creating LaTeX documents.
The book's core provides numerous useful details and examples of how to typeset math, both simple and complex, using either LaTeX commands or AMS-LaTeX commands. This is the most important aspect of the book and is supported with many important examples using both LaTeX and AMS-LaTeX document classes with supporting example articles to be found in the appendix.
Valuable chapters include how to write books in LaTeX with details of how to handle large bibliographies and indices. Additionally, the complex issue of how to format math for web based publications is also presented in some detail.
Lastly, the structure of the book is very clear and formatted ideally, providing the reader with an excellent example of how to typeset and structure a book using LaTeX.
