Note: The third edition appeared in 2009, ISBN (hardback) 978-0-262-03384-8.
Detailed, broad in scope, clearly written, very decently priced. I recommend it very highly. -- GarethMcCaughan
"Throughout this text, the authors anchor their discussion of algorithms with current examples drawn from molecular biology (like the Human Genome Project), business, and engineering. Each section ends with short discussions of related historical material, often discussing original research in each area of algorithms. On the whole, they argue successfully that algorithms are a "technology" just like hardware and software that can be used to write better software that does more, with better performance." --Amazon Review
