The Gaylord et al book is okay, I'm going to use it in an introduction to programming course this Fall. I think the Abell Braselton books are a waste of time and money. To me, it's hard to beat Wolfram's book. I regard it as one of the best books I own in any area. Roman Maeder's book is excellent. However, if you're just starting it may be a bit uphill for you. Get it anyway and put it under your pillow. Stan Wagon's book is a great one for fun and inspiration. It's called Mathematica in Action. Sorry, Maeder's book is called Programming in Mathematica.
