[Tex/LaTex] How to write a book in LaTeX?


I wish to turn several of my blog article series into a PDF e-book but I have never used LaTeX before for creating books.

For example, I want to take my Awk One-Liners Explained article series, improve it and turn it into a book.

I'll probably start with this guide that I found – http://www.math.mun.ca/~edgar/thesis.html But that is just a small template. Any other tips, tricks and suggestions for doing it?

I think that you should try using either scrbook or the memoir document class. They are designed for this kind of work. IMHO Memoir has better documentation so you'll propably find it easier to configure it the way you want it.

There is also memdesign, which used to be part of the documentation of memoir.
