I'd like to chip in with an unsolicited testimonial of my own:David Parks'
"Presentations" package gives an extraordinary boost to the graphical
capabilities of Mathematica.
A small subset of examples using the Presentations package are shown at, and more info about
it is found at David's own pages:

I should also add that I am constantly amazed by the patience and generosity
of people like David and Jens-Peer [ and many others ] in answering "newbie"
questions from people like myself. We should also be thankful to the regular
contributors from members of Wolfram who clearly keep an eye on developments
in this group.
