Amazing Feb. 7 2012
By Oliver - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is truly something. Everything is explained in great amount of detail and several examples of the different techniques used for algorithms are really well explained, and the best part is that you can actually understand it. While everything they say is demonstrated, they dont use as much mathematical notation as other books, instead, they take their time to explain it with words and examples (yet they do use just the right amount of math notation to prove everything they say).

The pseudocode is c++like and that helped me understand everything so much better. They explain complexity, divide and conquer, dynamic programming, greedy algotirithms, and so much more in a way thats easy to understand and well documented. They also include several books after every chapter where you can expand what you have learned. They also include a good amount of pictures.

All in all this is the only book which actually helped me understand prim, kruskal, and dijkstra in a way I could actually code it myself. So I am extremely thankful for that. Also, beware that I found one typo in prim which changed everything. :)

Format: Hardcover
This book is to anyone from beginner to advanced CS students because the book is delivered in a sequential order from basics to advanced concepts, ease of comprehension, and very well illustrated examples. A Must have book.

Ok book but not complete Oct. 14 2013

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Using this book for my algorithms analysis class and while the algorithms in the book are efficient the text itself is lacking without a supplemental book. Even my instructor says that without the supplemental book some of the problems in the book are not really doable.

This is my required textbook. I think it's nice with the examples and explanation. I bought the used book (like new), and it's really new.
