Still brief - but with the chapters that you wanted - Steven Chapra's new second edition is written for engineers and scientists who want to learn numerical problem solving. This text focuses on problem-solving (applications) rather than theory, using MATLAB, and is intended for Numerical Methods users; hence theory is included only to inform key concepts. The new second edition feature new material such as Numerical Differentiation and ODE's: Boundary-Value Problems.
