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.
