[OS X TeX] Book class tweaks

I'm using the book class to produce a laboratory manual.  (This may not 
be the best choice, but I don't have time to switch right now.  For the 
record, is there a notably better choice?  Nothing I found on CTAN 
seemed especially compelling.  The documentation for memoir and my 
inability to find an appropriately reasonable template kept me away from 
it for now.)

Anyway ... I'd like to tweak some of the formatting parameters. 
Perusing book.cls shows me how to fiddle with some of them, but I find 
myself at a loss to adjust some list properties such as the spacing 
between list items and their indentation.  (In the latter case, what 
seemed like the obvious choices did not have the expected effect, so I'm 
hoping for moreexpert advice.)
