I don't understand why memoir is supposed to be superior to book for creating a book. Can anyone enlighten me? (I have used book for two book projects, and would like to know why I am being silly:-)

Based on the last time I looked at the documentation for the middle two packages:
If you're in the US (and speak English), use Memoir, if you're in Europe, and speak one of the (native) languages of the developers of KOMA, use KOMA.
If you're an English speaker elsewhere (UK?) Memoir would probably be the best choice, but you may need to make more effort to adapt it.
