Amzoti:

I would put in an enthusiastic plug for Paul Wellin's new book:

Programming with Mathematica: An Introduction. Cambridge University Press (2013). ISBN 978-1-107-00946-2.

Uses version 8.

And lots of gratis supporting material at:

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

Under "Resources".

(BTW, ISBNs work well for web searching, and in Amazon books.)

The Amazon review ratings are currently {6,3,1,0,0}, 5* down to 1*. (None are mine!)

Cheers

Barrie

PS
I'm recommending this to my University's library.

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.
