The DP solutions in this book are not actually tabular DP formulations--I recommend looking at the problems here http://people.cs.clemson.edu/~bcdean/dp_practice/ (Brian Dean's Dynamic Programming Practice Problems). Gayle presents memoized solutions, which are much easier conceptually but not as clean or performant as bottoms-up tabular solutions.
The only reason I can't give 5 stars is this should be available in a ebook format. I don't buy physical books anymore since it's just a pain to lug around/store and as a result, they are often forgotten. And I've loaned this book to so many people they're really losing money buy not offering it on Kindle, which I would not be able to share.
