1.0 out of 5 stars
Slightly more fun than the dentist, but not much., April 11 2002
As textbooks go, this one is pretty dry. Granted, it is about Algorithm analysis, but even so, its pretty bad. The explanation of the concepts is poor, and the exercises are not obviously answered in the text, if they are at all. This book is known to actually introduce concepts in the exercises at the end of the chapter. Question: what is X? Index says: see question on X. I have never had a worse text in my life. If you are a teacher, and hate your students, require this book. It more than any other will give your pupils ulcers and sleepless nights.
