The code is very useable in small pieces and so you should not hesitate to explore the book and type in the code bits as you go. Wickham-Jones in "Mathematica Graphics" cites Gray and uses examples from it. I have not seen any reviews of the book from the mathematical or Mathematica community but would be very interested in seeing one. The book really has opened up differential geometry to me.
