This book is extremely well written. It covers a lot of ground, and it covers it deeply. Because of that, it might be a little hard for beginners; You'll need to skip over sections if you don't want to break your brain in half.

It's an excellent reference book. Some people think that a reference book is useless now because you can search on the internet, but I don't think you can find websites written as well as this book.

Still contains all the material which has made this book great. Some nice new additions though the removal of binomial heaps saddens me.

This book clearly describes all the concepts and theories with very informative examples and exercises. It takes you from very basics of the data structures and some simple algorithms into complex and fascinating problems.
If you are taking a course in Algorithms or just want to expand your knowledge, this book is for you!

I bought this book to learn algorithms in a self taught manner but it turns out to be "just" a reference book.
The book is well written and it covers a lot of topics.
It is very rigorous indeed. It's actually empathizes rigor over accessibility.
For a beginner like me it feels like learning to speech by reading the dictionary.

I would advise you buy this book of you already know the topic a minimum but need a reference OR if you are using it as a textbook in class.

To give you an idea of the target audience, there I actually stumbled upon an instance where the book had something like this:
"By exercise XXX, some given property is true" where XXX is an exercise given at the end of a previous chapter.
Come on... Can you not, for the lone learner, explain why such property is true?
And the book also mentions that only a portion of the exercises have correction because they want the teachers to be able to give exercise and make sure the students cannot google the solution.
It does make sense. But it's another hint of the targeted audience.

I will still rate 4, because as a reference book it's good.
But beginners: you've been warned.

now i know i'm dumb. However the book is excellent at explaining complex concepts in as simple a way as possible, with a lot of helpful diagrams. It is an excellent book for a difficult subject.

People have called this the best book for algorithms. If you want to learn about algorithms and have no prior knowledge, this is what you want to read!
