From the Back Cover
Create sound software designs with data structures that use modern object-oriented design patterns! Author Bruno Preiss presents the fundamentals of data structures and algorithms from a modern, object-oriented perspective. The text promotes object-oriented design using Java and illustrates the use of the latest object-oriented design patterns. Virtually all the data structures are discussed in the context of a single class hierarchy. This framework clearly shows the relationships between data structures and illustrates how polymorphism and inheritance can be used effectively. Key Features of the Text
* All data structures are presented using a common framework. This shows the relationship between the data structures and how they are implemented.
* Object-oriented design patterns are used to demonstrate how a good design fits together and transcends the problem at hand.
* A single Java software design is used throughout the text to provide a better understanding of the operation of complicated data structures.
* Just-in-time presentation of mathematical analysis techniques introduces students to mathematical concepts as needed.

It covers a lardge set of sorting techniques with exampl codes.
A lot of formulas with excellent explanations.
I can use a lot of this material in my programs.
Having sad that I like this book just because its treatment of the material in more formal way than other typical DS&A books. I use it in my classes, too. If you like formal approach it is highly recommended. I think it would quite a good match with Discrete Math course if the second is given in a proper way. There are many links that can be established between the two.
There is something of a reliance upon a hierarchy structure (introduced in ch. 5) which i think might turn some people off in using this book as a text. Chapters seem to build upon previous chapters, requiring you to read most of the book. Professors have a tendency to skip around to fit the curricula into the time of the class term which might make the book seem confusing--i've just been reading it straight through for personal amusement so i'm not as influenced by this. I think this class hierarchy is justified because the book isn't just about data structures, its also about design patterns. If you know something about either data structures or design patterns you can gain insight into both from reading this.
And as for compiling the code...the purpose of books like this shouldn't be to copy and paste code. If you have even a vague understanding of the material "filling in the blanks" and writing your own code should be a simple matter.
This book may be useful to learn the basics of software engineering. But given complexity of the design patterns in this book, it could be glossed over in one lecture.
