To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Firstly, this is not the international edition. It's the Eastern economy edition. And the book I received, sold by "law book world", seems like a xerox copy. Doesn't seem legit. Disappointed about that.
But I got it for a price of 900 Rs. Still, it's not correct for the seller to ship a Xerox copy. And the quality of the xerox is not good as well because in many pages, the ink is too light and almost not readable.
Coming to the book itself, it's a great book and no doubt it. Recommend this book to anyone who wants to study algorithms.
I have bought this book over 2 years ago but only now I have realised that over 100 pages are missing (I usually use an electronic version of it). You clearly can see from the images that it is not possible seeing the missing pages from the side of the tome that means the book is was originally faulty.
Comprehensive and large selection of algorithms with emphasis on analysis of the runtime of the algorithms. Written as student textbook so some of elaboration and analysis is presented as exercises to be completed. The algorithms themselves are clearly described and given in pseudo-code, but there is no difficulty transcribing them into an actual language.
On balance given 5* for comprehensive coverage of algorithms and clear descriptions - but don't expect a pure cookbook of algorithms that can be typed in or downloaded.
Maybe a bit formal technically but the best book around as far as I have seen. The only place I could really find for Van Embde trees which apparently are the latest thing. Very (very) comprehensive and worth persevering with - given its formality. Really a must for reference.
Rightly regarded as the go-to book for algorithms. Do not be tempted to get the cheaper far-east edition which is printed in tissue paper, go for the higher quality softback or the hard back if you can afford it, you'll be using it a lot and you'll want it to last!
