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 the or less lay reader As for me, I studied this to whet my appetite before plunging headfirst into the massive tome that is CLRS. 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 is appropriate that describes algorithm design techniques and certainly does not contain practice exercises at the end of the book although there are handy citations Rather than mathematical proofs, the author employs simple analogies and reasoning to explain the works of the algorithms I think the chapters on shortest path algorithms, sorting and string algorithms are quite adequate as a way of introduction As the author exclaims in the preface, if you get this algorithm joke you are pretty much half way there to understanding algorithm outlines Did you hear about the computer scientist who got stuck in the shower He was washing his hair and following the instructions on the shampoo bottle They read Lather Rinse Repeat. 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. 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 but technical 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 solve problems It quite naturally requires a mathematical inclination, but unlike most algorithm books, it relies on description and reasoning rather than equations to illustrate the concepts.It is difficult to determine the target audience for this book If you ve read THE book on Algorithms i.e., Cormen s other book , then you ll gain little from reading this.If you would like a better grasp of how programmers approach problems, perhaps as a journalist, manager, or co worker, then this will probably be worth reading.Any junior or self taught programmer who finds standard algorithm texts too difficult should consider this book a must read.And finally, for the layman who is curious, or who wants to learn a new style of problem solving perhaps having exhausted books by the likes of Zeitz or Michalewicz , this book will prove to be both readable and thought provoking.

Definitely not as good and thorough as Introduction to Algorithms , but good enough for anyone looking a simpler introduction. A nice organized book and friendly to people who have little computer science background. Good algorithms book. Not for the newbies.
Thomas H Cormen is the co author of Introduction to Algorithms, along with Charles Leiserson, Ron Rivest, and Cliff Stein He is a Full Professor of computer science at Dartmouth College and currently Chair of the Dartmouth College Writing Program.
