"Why is 'lEX so hard to use?" is the most frequent comment/complaint made by (frustrated) 'lEX users. The answer: Because it is programmable (has many features commonly found in programming languages), because it pays attention to detail, and because its creator has developed it for his own use (perhaps also his administrative assistant's) and not for general use. The material presented here is a direct result of this complaint and is an attempt to make it easier for inexperienced users to get the kind of high-quality typesetting that is possible with 'lEX. The material is based on classes taught since 1985, and on the author's personal experience with 'lEX, which includes writing three books and numerous articles, handouts, and letters. Both introductory and advanced material is included here. There are many examples as well as a detailed discussion of topics, such as \ valign and \emergencystretch, that are only briefly touched upon in The TpJXbook. Chapter 20 describes the macros used to typeset this book; it also lists the METAFONT programs for the special characters used.

TheTeX Reference Manualis the first comprehensive reference manual written by a programmer for programmers. It contains reference pages for each of TeX's 325 primitive control sequences. Over 80% of its reference pages contain examples that range from simple to challenging. Each example is typeset verbatim in a style which is easy to read and experiment with.TeX Reference Manualalso just typesets the example, so you can see what it makes, and explains how the example works. The description on each primitive's reference page is an annotated discussion of The TeXbook's treatment of the primitive. That means a TeX user will find it natural to move back and forth between the two books. One ofTeX Reference Manual's innovative features is families. They simplify the search for the primitive which performs a particular task. Primitive Control Sequences, Family Name Type Description, Box (29) Logic (20) C Command (163), Character (16) Macro (20) D Derived Command (17), Debugging (25) Marks (4) IQ Internal Quantity (42), File I/O (13) Math (69) PI Parameter (integer) (55), Fonts (5) Page (13) PD Parameter (dimen) (21), Glue (12) Paragraph (30) PG Parameter (glue) (15), Hyphenation (11) Penalties (12) PM Parameter (muglue) (3), Inserts (8) Registers (11) PT Parameter (token) (9), Job (11) Tables (9), Kern (7). TeX Reference Manualhas appendices which provide a comprehensive discussion of: verbatim material, PostScript fonts, and two-column material. In particular, one word describes its font macros, elegant. TheTeX Reference Manualis an invaluable tool for both the experienced and new users of TeX.

The current book can be studied together with the texbook Statistics Applied To Clinical Trials by the same authors, or separately. The authors often hear that students have difficulties in understanding statistics from a textbook and that self-assessment through exercises and examples is required. Rather than trying to be complete, this book focuses on the main aspects, including the test statistics generally used for the primary analysis of continuous and proportional data from randomized controlled clinical trials. In the past few years statistical analysis has increasingly been left to the computer, and clinical investigators are at a loss to understand the limitations of the research and its statistical analysis, on the one hand, while on the other hand, statistical results are often overemphasized. This self-assessment book is not only useful for investigators involved in the field of clinical trials, but also for every physician who wishes to better understand the data from trials as published currently.

The Joy of TeX is the user-friendly guide to AMSTeX, a software package based on the computer typesetting language TeX. AMSTeX was designed to simplify typesetting of mathematical quantities, equations, and displays, and to format the output according to any of various preset style specifications. This second edition of Joy reflects the changes introduced on Version 2.0 of the AMSTeX macro package. The first two parts of the manual, ``Starters'' and ``Main Courses'', teach the reader how to typeset the kind of text and mathematics one ordinarily encounters. ``Sauces and Pickles'', the third section, treats more exotic problems and includes a 60-page dictionary of special TeXniques. The manual also includes descriptions of conventions of mathematical typography to help the novice technical typist. Appendices list handy summaries of frequently used and more esoteric symbols. This manual is useful for technical typists as well as scientists who prepare their own manuscripts. For the novice, exercises sprinkled generously throughout each chapter encourage the reader to sit down at a terminal and learn through experimentation.
