Besides the basic data structures (arrays, trees, linked lists, hashes, etc) there's a small math section that goes over mathematical induction and some proofs. This book is also responsible for giving the best advice about recursion I've heard - take it on faith.
For example, it will teach you how to use generics in java, to write a fairly solid Binary Search Tree. But then it just moves on to the next data structure. This is of absolutely no use. There needs to be at least a page after each data structure, which outlines how to use it.
If this book included this, I would rate it 5 stars. But without it, it is utterly useless. What a shame.
