Top critical review
Better alternatives exist
21 March 2019
It appears to be a rehash of a lot of materials (books, blogs, websites etc). The book did not add much value.
The book lacks an index. I was not able to search for a specific topic or problem and this was a deal breaker for me.
The dimensions of the physical book was a bit awkward too. It was almost similar to the dimensions of A4. I would prefer something wider and less longer.
You are better off with other books and other material available on the Internet. I especially liked "The algorithm Design Manual" by Skiena, and "Elements of programming interviews" by Aziz/Lee/Prakash. I acknowledge that these books do not really elaborate on DS and are primarily Algo related. CLRS and DPV are classics and very good for algorithms.
