I've had this book for a few months now. I found it very
useful since I went to College (not University) and only
was exposed to what what immediately practical. I had to
learn theory from other sources such as friends and
coworkers who had actually taken Computer Science in
This book helped and still helps to bridge the gap between
the practical and the theoretical.
I highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning
about Algorithms - not simply limiting themselves to
'about how to program'.
