There are over 100 books published about Mathematica.

One of my personal favourites is "Mathematica: A Practical
Approach" by Nancy Blachman. But there are several that
are worth looking at.

For a detailed description take a look at


Here is a list of all the tutorial/reference books from that
listing that are available in English.
