1. I agree with the previous recommendation partially. The Mathematica book is a
model of good documentation, true. Still, it may not be the best for

2. my strong personal favourities (from at least 20 I looked through and 8 I
read) were Patrick Tam - A physicists guide to mathematica. Don't be misled
by the title. It's excellent beginner to high-intermediate tutorial. Showing
use of Mathematica to solve real problems - though most examples are, admittedly
from physics. Very well written and very well organized. Teaching quite well
some elements of programming, too.

the other is David Wagner - Power programming with Mathematica, which concentrates
of the Mathematica programming language. Very useful for advanced programming.

Still, I've been out of this for a couple of years now and something new
could have appeared.
