This review is from: The LATEX: User's Guide and Reference Manual: A Document Preparation System (Paperback)
The author of this book actually created LaTeX (essentially a set of macros written in TeX) so you can't really get more authoritive that this. This is definitely the best guide I've found to LaTeX as it's very accessible and seems paced about right. If you need to use LaTeX (it's still quite popular in hard science and academia) then this book is a good starting point. Due to its age it won't be up to date and the latest new features and improvments but it will give you a good start on the system so you'll be able to understand thr guides which do cover the latest new features and improvements.
