In agreement with the publisher, the “LaTeX Beginner’s Guide” ebook will soon be officially available for free download. But this will be for a single day only, within the next two weeks. I cannot tell the date yet, not even if it’s tomorrow or next week. Otherwise, the regular price is € 24.97, just € 0,00 during 24 hours, as the publisher allowed.
I’m the author of the book; and I want to make it freely available for our LaTeX friends who support or share our hobby without getting paid or rewarded for it. So, while on Stack Exchange we get reputation points and shiny badges for producing content and for various kinds of activity, there are still older web forums without that game. That’s why my personal reward gets there at first: the whole story with more information and updates is here on LaTeX-Community.org.
Though it’s an internal subforum thread to honor members, everybody can easily join to read it. A small LaTeX challenge question prevents bots from entering, but it won’t be an obstacle for a LaTeX friend.
Would you like to help out a bit? If I see some of our fellow TeX friends from here helping with their experience to solve some topics and to answer some lonely question, I’ll thank by sharing the upcoming download link for here as well.
Have a gut feeling that it’s kind of site promotion? Well, LaTeX-Community.org already promotes TeX.SE, for example Luca’s recent articles on the front page are purely advertising TeX.SE solutions.
