I am planning to start a book project and will greatly appreciate comments on the relative merits of the various book document classes such as book, memoir, KOMA, and amsbook. I have read the chapter on books in Grätzer's "More Math Into LaTeX" 4th edition, and Peter Wilson's "Notes on Book Design." Of course, I have done my due diligence with Google.

The book will contain many complex equations and line graphs, an executive summary, a few tables, and the usual bibliography, TOC, list of figures, and list of tables. I consider it to be a standard book without fancy headers or sidebars.

Thanks in advance.
