    This book is a gem Extremely well written, not dry, yet precise It covers many important algorithms and intuitions behind their design and timings At a little over 200 pages, 10 chapters, the book can realistically be read in about 10 days in its entirety I am reading the book as part of preparation for a technical interview It is wonderful in this context I ve been familiar with 99% of the algo

    This book is great as a first introduction to the formal study of algorithms It assumes no prior knowledge of algorithms analysis and a pretty basic knowledge of mathematics The author succeeds in explaining some complicated concepts simply for theor less lay reader As for me, I studied this to whet my appetite before plunging headfirst into the massive tome that is CLRS.

    I had been asked, at one point, to recommend an algorithm book to a layman.While I was wavering between O Reilly s odd Algorithms in a Nutshell and the quite good buttechnical Algorithms by Dasgupta Papadimitriou Vazirani, this book by Cormen came out I blasted through it on the beach during vacation and found it perfect.This is a book for people interested in how computers or computer programmers sol

    I just love reading Thomas Cormen.If you ve never read a book on algorithms and don t have enough time to go into 1000 pages of CLRS Introduction to Algorithms , this book is for you In 10 short chapters total of 240 pages , it goes through nothan 20 algorithms in just enough detail so you get the gist It s not just merge sort and bubble sort either it goes into string matching, compression, paths in gra

    This is the kind of book one wants to keep coming back to It is a crisp account of the different algorithms that run the world A very easy read The visceral treatment makes this book an introductory text I highly recommend this to anyone interested in knowing about algorithms.


  6. says:

    Definitely not as good and thorough as Introduction to Algorithms , but good enough for anyone looking a simpler introduction.

    This is one of the best books I have read on algorithms, entry level and highly digestible and the book itself is structured effectively chapter by chapter I loved the fact that the author used pseudocode to describe the algorithm logics which made the the explanations muchfocused on the logic.As mentioned, it s entry level, touches the basics such as binary search, sorting algorithms, etc but it gets into medium

    This book serves as a soft introduction to algorithms and how they work to solve real world problems,without any of the mathematical rigor In that sense this book is quite useful to someone who is new to programming or simply wants to understand how computer programs or algorithms work This is not a textbook the other book ie introduction to algorithms, coauthored by Cormen isappropriate that describes algorithm des

    Its like mini version of CLRS.Good to have after you have studied somethingthorough.

    This book is great for anyone looking to get an idea of how computer algorithms are used to solve problems and how algorithms are compared with one another It s very approachable and clearly conveys the key insights for important algorithms and even makes spaces to describe how some problems are not solvable for computers beyond some small inputs or not solvable at all.
