New arrival

Postby wild-heart » Mon Sep 12, 2016 7:54 am

Good day community.

I am new to Latex, and enjoying the power of Tex, even though I going crazy at times with the steep learning curve. I found many answers to questions on this forum so decided to join formally.

A post by Stefan_K on the forum lead me to two books by Stefan Kottwitz, which I found rather enjoyable and easy to read from the free sample provided. I like the approach of using examples to explain terms, commands and concepts. I taking that the account Stefan_K is the author Stefan Kottwitz.

Stefan, I would like to obtain the electronic versions of these 2 books (I gave up years ago with paper versions, too heavy and pain to get delivered), but don't know what the format being used for eBooks. I hoping they come as watermarked (typically email address of buyer) PDFs so I can view them on any device using any OS (particular Linux). Also PayPal can be used for payment?

Welcome to the forum!

You can get the book as PDF, and also as EPUB and MOBO file download.
The beginner's guide is: here. You can try the code PACKT20 at checkout, perhaps it gets 20% discount, if I remember correctly.
The newer cookbook here. Some samples: latex-cookbook.net.

If you have any question, feel free to ask here in the forum.

I start reading these books!
I wish I could donate my body fat to those in need.
