Which IKEA bookshelf is the strongest, which the easiest to put together, and which sits at the intersection of those things?

I've always been a fan of the Billy series of bookcases. I have five of them.

Do you use the wall-mount brackets they say to use, or do you prefer to live dangerously?

(All my IKEA is secondhand and was in my apartment when I moved in.)

I prefer to live...dangerously :) I've never had a problem. A trick I use to add a little extra security is to fold up a small rectangle of cardboard and stick it under each "leg" of the bookcase in order to tip it ever-so-slightly back against the wall. It's just enough to tilt the cases in the right direction.
