Help on selecting Diff. Equations book.


Hello Everyone:
I am looking for a book on Mathematica and diffential equations.  My knowledge
of the program is limited (though I own it) and I have not taken the Diff. Eq.
course.  My criteria for the book is that it be clear, comprehensive, and less
than $60 (minus tax + shipping).  Also, I prefer that the author(s) be
unobstrusive.  For those of you who know Purcell and Varberg, I prefer their
writing style.
 
My  present list consists of the following:
 
Partial Differential Equations w/ Mathematica by Dimitri Vvedensky
Differential Equations w/ Mathematica by M.L. Abell & J.P. Braselton
Differential Equations: An Introduction w/ Mathematica by Clay C. Ross
 
The description of the last book states "suitable for students in mathematics
, physics, and engineering." This makes it perfect for me; I need to take
physics, and my major is mech. eng.   If any of you know the publisher's,
Springer-Verlag, telephone number please let me know.
 
Opinions and comments on the other books are welcome.
 
Adeau and thanks.
