Well just because I suck at Mathematica programming it doesn’t mean you should suck at it too. Nor does it mean that I should suck at it forever.
With that in mind I want to bring to your attention a couple of resources on Mathematica that are certainly very useful.
The other book I’ll mention is freely available and quite frankly is very, very good. You can get it here with a lot of additional resources.
I’ll give myself two or three months to read these books and in the meantime I hope to become better at Mathematica.
