After looking through newsgroup posts I got "Power Programming with
Mathematica" by David Wagner, and I've found it to be excellent (by no
means too basic).  It is more concerned with learning the various
techniques of programming available in mathematica, and goes in-depth
into some things that would otherwise remain mysterious (for example,
held expressions, rule-based programming).  It uses examples, but is
not really applications oriented.
