"Totally indispensabe. ...Run, do not walk, to get your copy."
-Robert M. Lurie, MIT for iJournals
"...is a gem of clarity and concise application...If the book has any failings, it is in leaving the reader begging for more."
-Scientific Computing and Instrumentation
"This is an excellent reference book that I would recommend to anyone who is...a serious user of Mathematica."
- Bill Emerson, Metropolitan State University
"There is a great need for this book. The outstanding feature...is the great variety of Mathematica programs."
- Mike Mesterton-Gibbons, Florida State University
"...does a fantastic job at introducing Mathematica for the applied scientist. The book's use of Mathematica is slick, intelligent and comprehensive."
- Joaquin Carbonara, Buffalo State University
"Mathematica Navigator is packed with excellent examples...an invaluable companion to any textbook for most Mathematica-enriched courses."
- Fred Szabo, Concordia University
Review
Bill Emerson of Metropolitan State University says:
"I think that this is a superb reference that would be of interest to faculty, serious users
of Mathematica, and, potentially, mathematics undergraduate or graduate students. I
am particularly impressed by the organization which allows a mathematician to
approach Mathematica by specific mathematical topics rather than using the
organization of Wolfram's Mathematica Book. In addition, I find that the text is clearly
written and the examples are well-chosen."

Joaquin Carbonara from Buffalo State says:
The book use of Mathematica is slick, intelligent and comprehensive. It emphasizes
Mathematica's strengths, and does it in the best possible way.
