This is not a textbook the other book ie.

How easy is it for people from outside the field? 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. Dec 25, Steve Gross rated it really liked it.


Cormen received a Ph. As the author exclaims in the preface, if you get this algorithm joke you are pretty much half way there to understanding algorithm outlines: I think the author has perfectly hit a sweet spot of importance, completeness and precision in a package that is very agorithms.
