Can someone tell me if the 1st edition of The Latex Companion is pretty much still usable in terms of learning the details of using latex? It's 17 years old and I know this is probably something that isn't constantly changing but I'd just like to get everyones opinions. I tried using bibtex for my references in a paper I'm writing and woo, what a disaster that was. Lucky to get out of that with my head still on. KTHX!!!
