If you are looking for a book describing Mathematica 6 specific features such as dynamic interactivity (Dynamic, Manipulate, ...), the new graphic engine, etc., I am not aware of any. Speaking about "comprehensive", nothing is more comprehensive than the four volumes of The Mathematica Guidebook, by by Michael Trott, http://www.mathematicaguidebooks.org/ Highly recommended for anyone who is serious about understanding Mathematica and mathematics as well, for the examples are usually not trivial. The web site contains many resources that should give you a good idea of what this beast is about. (Note that The Mathematica Guidebook should be updated for version 6 at some point in 2009). In addition, I would recommend: MATHEMATICA NAVIGATOR, by Heikki Ruskeepaa, 844 pages, Academic Press ISBN-13: 978-0-12-603642-8 ISBN-10: 0-12-603642-X http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/bookdescription.cws_home/710247/descript ion#description The Mathematica Book, Fifth Edition, by Stephen Wolfram, 1488 pages, Wolfram Media; 5th edition ISBN-10: 1579550223 ISBN-13: 978-1579550226 http://www.amazon.com/Mathematica-Book-Fifth-Stephen-Wolfram/dp/157955022 3 An Introduction to Programming with Mathematica, Third Edition, by Paul R.
