About the Author
Robert Sedgewick has been a Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University since 1985, where he was the founding Chairman of the Department of Computer Science. He has held visiting research positions at Xerox PARC, Institute for Defense Analyses, and INRIA, and is member of the board of directors of Adobe Systems. Professor Sedgewick’s research interests include analytic combinatorics, design and analysis of data structures and algorithms, and program visualization. His landmark book, Algorithms, now in its fourth edition, has appeared in numerous versions and languages over the past thirty years. In addition, with Kevin Wayne, he is the coauthor of the highly acclaimed textbook, Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach (Addison-Wesley, 2008).
Kevin Wayne is the Phillip Y. Goldman Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Princeton University, where he has been teaching since 1998. He received a Ph.D. in operations research and industrial engineering from Cornell University. His research interests include the design, analysis, and implementation of algorithms, especially for graphs and discrete optimization. With Robert Sedgewick, he is the coauthor of the highly acclaimed textbook, Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach (Addison-Wesley, 2008).

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.
There's a few things I strongly dislike about this book--
1. The Java syntax is massively distracting. I'd rather have pseudocode.
2. The pages are glossy--a lot of books are doing this, but it causes reflections on the pages, which makes it more optically difficult to read. This is infuriating!
3. The index is fairly bad. For example, 'string matching' isn't in the index, but Knuth Morris Pratt IS in the index.
That said, I use this book often when working through new algorithm design when Cormen lets me down...but this is never my first go-to-book.
Depending on how you get to this page, you can see one of three different books all presented as the same book.
(1) A new edition of Algorithms in C++, published in August 2013 -- search in books for the title and you will see the listing, "Algorithms in C++ by Robert Sedgewick (Aug 24, 2013)"
(2) An ancient edition of Algorithms in C, which is what you see if you click the "Look inside this book"
(3) A 2002 book, "Algorithms in C++ Part 5: Graph Algorithms (3rd Edition): Graph Algorithms Pt.5"
If you search for "Algorithms in C++", click the link for the 2013 version, and try to buy the Kindle edition, you end up with the 2002 graphs book.
Is there even a 2013 edition of Algorithms in C++? If you search for the same title on another book site, it looks like version with the cheesy graphics and blue cover is actually the 1992 edition.
I did not want to penalize any of the excellent Sedgewick books for Amazon's mistake so I made this a 5-star review.
