This project is part of the GNU Project.

TeX for the Impatient is a ~350 page book on TeX, plain TeX, and Eplain, written by Paul Abrahams, Kathryn Hargreaves, and Karl Berry.

An PDF of the current version of the book can be downloaded from

Both TUG and CTAN have mirrors of the book but they are outdated. I am seeing what I can do to keep them updated as well.

Details (job description, contact ...):

We (the original authors) of TeX for the Impatient don't have any plans to expend significant effort extending or improving the book in the future, so anyone else is welcome to jump in and take over (become the maintainer). We'll be happy to help as much as we can.

The README and errata.future files in the distribution give some ideas.
