Well, as a confirmation of my own "reference material on physical
desktop, active computations on monitor screen" approach (or maybe just
my own compulsive character), I have literally razor-bladed my copy of
Navigator in 30 separate chapters, each held by a mini binder clip, all
of them standing upright in a box on my self. (Thank god he followed
the long-standing publishing practice of starting each chapter on a
right-hand page.)
When I need to get into some new Mathematica topic (stylesheet editing,
manipulations, difference equations, whatever), the relevant chapter
comes over on the desktop to get consulted, highlighted and marked up.
I wish he'd sell the book as a boxed set something like this -- or at
least a spiral-bound folio-sized lie-flat version.
