This book describes ideas of computer algebra and the language of the Mathematica system. It also contains a number of examples, mainly from physics, also from mathematics and chemistry. After reading this book and solving problems in it, the reader will be able to use Mathematica efficiently for solving his/her own problems. This book offers a simple, non-threatening, step-by-step approach to help math-savvy newcomers build the skills needed to use Mathematica in practice. It gets readers started on performing specific, relatively basic tasks, enabling them to build on the experience and move on to more real-world problems.

Wolfram[1] Mathematica’s creator. For more readable summaries of Mathematica’s features see the other books in the list at the end; I found that Chapter 2 of the book by Tam[2] is particularly helpful, see also the book by Kaufmann[3]. Appendix A of Kinzel and Reents[4] illustrates the use of a large number of Mathematica commands.

Mathematica has the most extensive collection of mathematical functions ever assembled. Often relying on original results and algorithms developed at Wolfram Research over the past two decades, each function supports a full range of symbolic operations, as well as efficient numerical evaluation to arbitrary precision, for all complex values of parameters. I read many Mathematica books, introductory and advanced - yet this one clearly stands out (even in this high quality field). The title and the previous reviewer suggest that this is a book for physicists or physics students. This is quite unfortunate, as it may put off others from learning proper use of Mathematica from this book/5.
