I highly recommend preforming a search for this book on Google.
You'll be able to get the entire book for free as a pdf.

Here is a link, but again, you can just Google it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good startup book to learn Matlab September 24, 2013
By Stephen
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've been reading this book and it gives you plenty of examples to understand the basic concepts of Matlab. It is very similar to the programming language Python, with small differences between the two languages. However, it would be wise to get at least the 2011b or higher version of Matlab to follow with this book due to how it codes Matlab expressions. The exercises at the end of each chapter do get moderately difficult as there is a lot of bookkeeping to do in terms of keeping a function/script and knowing how to apply them in Matlab language without any errors so the program knows what you are attempting to have it do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book for MATLAB! January 18, 2012
This book explains the material very well. I took the class Fall 11 and heavily relied on the book for my success. It thoroughly explains the processes and math and does not assume you know background material. Key MATLAB programs are demonstrated and the steps explained well. I recommend it for anyone needing to understand MATLAB in an engineering and numerical analysis setting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good April 15, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Its a nice book that gives beginners an introduction to Matlab. It doesn't do much more than that, so if you already know better, don't bother. However, for those starting out with Matlab, it does a very good job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to read March 22, 2014
By Justin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Got this book for an Intro to Numerical Methods class. Dunno if it was my instructor, or the book, but only ended up reading a couple chapters of it, virtually all the info in the book related to MatLab is contained in the matlab help file... and I ended up getting all the math proofs in my notes in class... So really didn't need the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great even for MATLAB beginners January 21, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is not a book to learn MATLAB. This is a book that teaches numerical methods (it does that very well). Great examples and great practice problems enabled me to grasp the material easily. The MATLAB exercises made it easier for a beginner programmer like me to write my own numerical analysis programs.

I am taking a MATLAB class at my college. I am new to programming languages; and in spite of that, this book has been extremely helpful.

The book reach its shipping destination in a fairly quick time.
