Donald Knuth is the original author of TeX and his book is a must read for those aspiring to be true TeX wizards.  Included among the wealth of information is the correct pronunciation of "TeX", and the proper name for a TeX guru -- it's "TeXnician"!  Michael Spivak wrote a very helpful supplement for using AMS-TeX, "The Joy of TeX".
