This book doesn't seem to have been updated since 1994, so it wasnt very helpful. It's okay if you are a beginner though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book of hints and tips 22 Mar 2003
By Digital Puer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book in 1996 when I entered graduate school and have utilised it as a reference while writing all my research papers as well as my dissertation. I also have "The LaTeX Companion" by Goossens et al., but this book is much more useful to me. At about 170 pages, it crams everything you need into a very short amount of space, including info on fonts, tables, math, formatting, etc. The chapter on large documents was invaluable to me when I was preparing my dissertation. Furthermore, the last chapter has a number of cool macros that have come in pretty handy.
Note that this is not a beginner's book on LaTeX, nor does it exhaustively show all the extremely cool bells and whistles that LaTeX can do; this book serves as a concise reference and list of hints and tips for using the key markups. When I write a paper, I like to concentrate on the actual content I'm writing about rather than how to format the text. However, when I do need to format text just right, I turn to this book, and it has never let me down.

2.0 out of 5 stars LaTex content is way out of date 13 Oct 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book doesn't seem to have been updated since 1994. There has been a large number of packages released for LaTex since then which this book does not seem to reference.
3.0 out of 5 stars This 1994 V1.4 Supports LaTeX and not current LaTeX2e 31 Mar 2009
By John E. Sherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I did not purchase this kindle release ebook because its content is so old; since I looked at the sample kindle book preview and what it presented about the publishing date. But, if your new to LaTeX2e typesetting; it follows, this books most-likley has some value for understanding how 'document markup language' works yesterday similar to as it still works today and LaTeX is updated each year.
