1.0 out of 5 stars Bad production quality, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Will (Paperback)
Very hard to turn pages. Uneven cut edges as if teared. Looks like they skipped the trimming stage. There must be zero quality control where this was printed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Look for an alternative, 15 Feb 2009
An ego trip of pretty applets, pretty pictures, and slow tedious explanations of which applet button to press (with their own headings and sections), which by the way, would be obvious to my 2 years old son.

The half of the book is code listings, (to be expected in a book about algorithms but in this case mostly fodder to fill space, not to put the idea across). Like:

arr.addElm(1);
arr.addElm(2);
...
add 20 more similar lines, repeat over every listing.

Some gems like:

"...but we haven't found the desired item, so we return total number elements in [array]....The user interprets this value to mean that the item wasn't found"

If you know absolutely nothing about programming, algorithms, data structures, Java, has lots of money and an inclination to waste some of it then buy this book.

I was going to drop it off in a charity shop but did not want to inflict it on someone else. Good as a doorstop only.
