I do not use LaTeX, far preferring the freedom and flexibility
of (Plain) TeX, but one book must leap out from the crowd :

	The LaTeX Companion, 2nd edition (TTCT series)
Frank Mittelbach, Michel Goossens, Johannes Braams, David Carlisle,
Chris Rowley

By the authors of LaTeX2e and numerous adjunct packages, there
can surely be no more definitive work.
