And in recommending Heikki's book, I simply meant to convey that he 
seems to be a skilled mathematiker who's now in the third edition of his 
book, and that he offers at least some description in the front matter 
of the book as to _how_ he wrote the book, starting with Mathematica 
notebooks and ending up with a very professional looking typeset book.

For more about the book, you might want to dig out a review of the 3rd 
edition published the Mathematica® Journal:

   Review of Mathematica Navigator, 3rd Edition, by Heikki Ruskeepää

   [Elsevier Academic Press, 2009 ISBN 978-0-12-374164-6]

   Written by Robert M. Lurie


   Mathematica Navigator: Mathematics, Statistics, and Graphics, 
   3rd edition, is an important resource for all users of Mathematica, 
   Version 6 or 7. This reviewer has found the book to be invaluable 
   in using and understanding Mathematica and taking advantage 
   of the many advances in the most recent versions of the program.
