I'm re-writing a book that I published over ten years ago, and in
the intervening period I've lost the sources, so I'm essentially
starting from scratch again. I started doing it in org-mode, and
have since converted it to latex, and these sites have helped me the
most -

The first starts with building a basic document and has lots of
examples. Then it shows you how to change things and do different
things with the latex source. The last one is similar, and gives you
more of the theory behind it all. The texblog poses problems and
gives you solutions.

It helps if you have an idea of what you achieve, and then you can
gradually build your document up.
