Format: Hardcover
This is a very old classic that was used over twenty years ago to teach the "bread and butter" algorithms for solving hard problems. I am sure the same topics are covered today in other texts using more up-to-date languages (e.g Java) and notation. My copy is well worn having created algorithms to solve games using "Divide-and-Conquer", "Greedy Method", "Dynamic Programming" etc. This book is probably useful as a collector's item ...buy a more up-to-date book if you are lookging to teach yourself "backtracking" or other algorithms. I just wanted to review in order to state how many problems I solved using the algorithms in this book.

In my opinion, even though the original edition dates from 1978, most of the book is still up to date. While keeping the level of difficulty quite reasonable, it really expounds non trivial algorithm design techniques. It also introduces the theory of lower-bounds, something often missing in the well-known textbooks.

Thanks. I received the book at an unbelievable low price. And the book is really nice and helpful! I think learn the knowledge inside the book as much as possible is the best way to reward the seller.
