From the Back Cover
This book emphasizes the creative aspects of algorithm design by examining steps used in the process of algorithm development. The heart of the creative process lies in an analogy between proving mathematical theorems by induction and designing combinatorial algorithms. The book contains hundreds of problems and examples. It is designed to enhance the reader's problem-solving abilities and understanding of the principles behind algorithm design.

But if you want to learn how to design algorithms yourself then the book you need to read is this one by Udi Manber.
The approach taken by the writer is unique and to my opinion better than any other Algorithm's books I've seen.
The writer tries to teach the reader how to design algorithms through the usage of mathematical induction - hence the words "A creative approach".
I find this book to be so good, that even though I've read most of the chapters already I keep coming back to it.
This is a must read for anyone who aspires to be a computer scientist.
I must admit I have not yet read a large portion of this book. But I have read a majority of Chapter 5, which is the core chapter of this book, and I am already impressed. Thanks a lot Udi Manber for writing this jewel.
