If you're looking for an exhaustive, upto-date reference/textbook for fundamental, searching and sorting algorithms, then this is one of the very best available. Sedgewick has split his popular book into two volumes, with Graph algorithms being hifted to the second volume. Moreover, many advanced topics like computational geometry, fft, number theoretic algorithms etc, which were introduced in the previous edition, seem to be missing now - so the breadth of coverage seems to have reduced, which is a pity. However, the depth has increased instead - i doubt that even Knuth covers more sorting algorithms ! In particular, there are several recent algorithms and data structures which are treated in greater detail here than by Knuth. Of course, Knuth analyses all the algorithms he presents in rigorous and exhaustive detail, which this book doesn't. Moreover, the book has many new algorithms and presents the state of the art in sorting and searching algorithms, giving it a distinct advantage over the older books. Sedgewick makes it very clear in the preface that the emphasis is on the practical importance of the algorithms, so esoteric algorithms which are important 'only in theory' may find no mention. Also the emphasis is more on the design of algorithms than on their analysis. The number of (exercise!!) problems has multiplied manifold in this edition to become more than most competing textbooks. Problems are graded by difficulty level to help you choose the ones relevant to your needs.The exposition is clear and authoritative - Prof. Sedgewick is a leading authority in the field of algorithms and a student of Donald Knuth.
