The standard reference for what goes on inside TeX is "The TeXbook" by Donald E. Knuth, ISBN 0-201-13448-9, published jointly by the American Mathematical Society and Addison-Wesley Publishing Company.

M. Goossens, F. Mittelbach, and A. Samarin, "The LaTeX Companion", published by Addison-Wesley, ISBN 0-201-54199-8 (essential for the serious LaTeX hackers).

L. Botway and C. Biemesderfer, "LaTeX Command Summary" published by the TeX Users Group, Providence, RI is a good companion.

A. Diller, "LaTeX Line by Line", published by Wiley.

Other information is available on the Web.
