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. -A

Mathematica Navigator by Heikki Ruskeepaa.  Has many chapters devoted to programming in Mathematica.  Make sure you get the latest 3d addition.
