"The collection is a valuable additon to the literature." Mathematical Reviews
This volume is devoted to an important subfield of Computer Science that Knuth founded in the 1960s and still considers his main life's work. Analysis of Algorithms deals with quantitative studies of computer techniques, leading to methods for understanding and predicting the efficiency of computer programs.

As a reader more interested in Knuth's work in general, I must admit that, despite having advanced degrees in CS and a quite decent math education, I found myself unable to follow the heavy mathematics employed, and ultimately, the problems analyzed were not interesting enough to me to make me spend the effort to follow it. One of the chapters was titled "A Trivial Algorithm Whose Analysis Isn't", and this probably sums up why I'm not entirely enthusiastic about this book and about the field of algorithm analysis in general.
Knuth wouldn't be Knuth if he didn't throw some lighter material in as well, and chapter 2, "The Dangers of Computer Science Theory", was quite amusing.
