Readers of MathGroup will be interested to know that the third
edition of the book Introduction to Programming with Mathematica
has just been published by Cambridge University Press and is now
available around the world.

Since the second edition of this book was published, three major
versions of Mathematica have been released. Introduction to
Programming with Mathematica has tracked these changes and
is the first book out that discusses new functionality up to and
including Mathematica 5.1.

The major changes from previous editions of the book include:

- new chapter on rule-based programming
- new chapter on front end programming
- reorganization and rewriting of main chapters on functional
and procedural programming
- overhaul of numerics chapter, now including packed and sparse
- inclusion of new string manipulation function examples
- scores of new exercises (over 200 now)

The book was written and output entirely in Mathematica, and so
in addition to its content, represents a model for authoring
significant projects in Mathematica (I would be happy to discuss
this aspect with anyone who is interested).

Sample chapters, solutions to exercises, packages and
applications are available in either notebook or PDF at two
