Prof.Wagon shares his experience about the difficulties he encountered in ensuring the correctness of the algorithms.
The lessons he offers on the importance of careful thinking and meticulously checking the results of calculations is alone worth the price of the book.
The algorithms in the book require Mathematica 3. They seem to work well with Mathematica 4 as well.
The selection of topics is excellent. This book can provide a great start to a lot fun and learning with Mathematica.
I hope Prof.Wagon brings out a new expanded edition for the current edition of Mathematica soon.

Here's a book that will help people fond of math to see functions and relationships that are very hard to understand without visual demonstration. The software is a great tool to use in your own explorations and studies.

I don't know if I'd use this as a first tutorial but the author presents a lot of interesting applications of Mathematica. Good typeset, diagrams, etc.

It's sort of a group of fun mathematical projects which, when doing, you learn more about using Mathematica. The levels of the projects go from beginner to very advanced.

I would recommend it.
