From the reviews of the second edition:
"The new edition contains a lot of additional material and new examples, and more emphasis is put on an interactive problem solving. In particular, advantage is taken of many special functions and frequently used operations which are available in Mathematica, in order to demonstrate how Mathematica can be used to replace lengthy `by-hand' calculations and to give graphical support." (M. Plum, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1095 (21), 2006)
