8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A. Shiekh on May 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
In my opinion the best book about Mathematica
programming around. Not just a list of rules,
but written from the perspective of a computer
scientist, with reasoning behind each construct.
For the person that wants to know why they are
doing what they are doing, rather than just what
they should be doing.
Amazing that it was ever allowed to go out of
Covers all styles of programming, procedural,
recursive and functional.
