I haven't used any of the books you listed, but I did invest in Roman
Maeder's "Programming in Mathematica" (2nd ed.), which I really found
helpful.  I think a beginner could read it, but I suspect it would work
better for an intermediate level user.

they translate it into their own language, and at once it is something
entirely different.                                    J. W. v. GOETHE
