This book was recommended by a friend. The book is not so big as to overwhelm with the finer details but comprehensive enough to cover the core topics. It definitely lived up the hype. I installed LATEX on my MAC and produced my first doc within the hour. This book has served me well through my first year of graduate stats. I keep it right next to my computer for easy reference. The formula examples are great and the book is well organized. I highly recommend it.
