However, the huge problem which makes me voting 4 star for the book is that some figures and illustrates are rendered badly (page 9, 675, 624, 621, 579, 576, 346, 326). Although I requested Amazon a replacement, the new book still has the same issue.
Some of the explanations and code examples were a little overly complicated- Sorting was explained using a 15-20 letter phase instead of starting with a single word to make it easier to digest and them moving on to the more complex example. On most topics our prof explained the algorithms a little differently than the book and his way was easier to comprehend.
If you're new to the study of algorithms, the trio of this book, its website, and the Coursera course are a potent combination for successful learning.
This is a more approachable alternative to the CLRS algorithms book.
