Reading this is like sitting at the feet of the master: it leads an apprentice from knowing how to program to understanding deep principles of algorithms. Novices will find it friendly, but lecturers may want to choose their own topics. It is great to read, but hard to dip into.

Who is it for? Students who want to read ahead.

Presentation: Informed and friendly.

Would I recommend it? To the students who want to learn.
