Most of the questions are good, but some of them are very long winded and I doubt they will ever be asked in interviews. The author does not provide a thought process to arrive at the algorithms, most of the time they are provided without forcing readers to think how to arrive at it. I found Programming Interviews Exposed better on this aspect.

This book is surprisingly good due to the varieties of the problems and mostly having good explanations on the solutions (better than cracking book). Some problems not found in other similar books.

The only problem I have with this book is it's not well-organized into areas - I know it's hard but for example, all strings related problems should be under the same chapters, same are arrays.

My recommended books: "Coding Interviews", "Elements of Programming Interviews", and "Cracking the Coding Interview" (must be 5th ed.) in that order.

This actually 4 stars book but I give 5 stars for the excellent effort and cancel out other bad reviews for a very good book even it's not the best.

I haven't read this entire book yet, but since it hs no reviews I thoght it be helpful to give my first impression.
I wanted to find a book that was very current, complete, and had more than just basic algorithms and structures.
I'm not sure how well the book reflects what is currently happening in interviews, but I get the impression that the author has enough experience from his job and from the comments on his blog to give a better than average impression of what kinds of answers interviewers are looking for and of the kinds of mistakes interviewee's are likely to make.
The questions from the data structures and algorithms sections look like the have been deliberately selected and layed out logically so that one idea leads to the next. The questions are written clearly. After the coverage of these topics from my school the answers are clear, but don't overlap so much that they don't seem interesting or useful.
The book covers details about testing and code quality that other books leave out.

This is better than anything I could find on the internet. It looks like the rest of the book will be useful and well written too.

The book is very good overall, the problems and analysis are inline with current interview trends and do refresh elements of algorithm that are useful in day to day operations.

Gave 4/5 as:
- one of, if not the first code sample in the book needs an errata, tried to submit one but I never got feedback after the post.
- there are a few typos and sentences that could be revised for consistency.
- the index of keywords is incomplete at the end of the book; so the ebook/pdf/kindle format might be better if you try to quickly find a specific element within the book. As in using the book as a reference book after the first read.

I rate this as a "buy".
