It's certainly definitive, and I for one could not use Mma without it.  At 
the same time, it's a bit challenging to learn the nuances of programming 
Mma (packages, contexts, etc.) from it.  I bought Maeder's _Programming in 
Mathematica_ as a supplement and thought I got my money's worth from it.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen:  whenever you say something to them,
they translate it into their own language, and at once it is something
entirely different.                                    J. W. v. GOETHE
