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. :)

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.

Very well written and explained throughout. This book is pretty math-heavy, but they go to great effort to keep it readable, and this is new to me.

In short, I like this book. The contents are well-organized. Graphs, tables and examples are effectively used as well. Each section has its specific example, which helps beginners easily grasp its concept.

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.
