Once convinced, for example by this answer, that I should buy a book on (La)TeX and friends, its is time to decide which one... This big list misses some ranking, and make it hard to choose.

This question and this one provides some details, but it seems that they mainly mention free references.

So, what would you recommend to buy?

I strongly recommend

The LaTeX Companion (Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting)

Frank Mittelbach, Michel Goossens, Johannes Braams, David Carlisle, Chris Rowley, Addison-Wesley, 2004.

    @DavidCarlisle these are people that sometimes hang out at TeX conferences (or used to). – topskip May 8 '13 at 8:25
