Hi

In answering a similar question within the last year, I suggested Paul Wellin's 710 page book "Programming with Mathematica" (2013).

http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Mathematica-Introduction-Paul-Wellin/dp/1107009464

http://www.cambridge.org/au/academic/subjects/computer-science/scientific-computing-scientific-software/programming-mathematica-introduction

Very well-written, comprehensive, treats Manipulate, 285 exercises, and beautifully produced by Cambridge University Press.

There is also the freely downloadable PDF book by Leonid Shifrin, which concentrates a bit more (402 pages) on the Mathematica language.

StackExcahnge has addressed this question also.

See, e.g., http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/18/where-can-i-find-examples-of-good-mathematica-programming-practice

Cheers

Barrie

Hi All, There are many Mathematica books out there, including many directed at specific topical areas. However, I am after a general programming book in Mathematica. Does such a book exist? Can anyone recommend which they liked more than others and why? Thanks for any inputs. -A

Mathematica Navigator by Heikki Ruskeepaa.  Has many chapters devoted to programming in Mathematica.  Make sure you get the latest 3d addition.
