Very well written and wide ranging
on 21 July 2002
This is a serious textbook, extremely well written, and not for the fainthearted. Buy the companion book with the solutions to the problems unless you have a tutor or are taking a course. As an engineer who uses maths as a means to an end, I'm finding it hard going, but well worth the effort.
If you just want a cookbook of algorithms, look elsewhere. But if you're willing to take some time, I'd recommend this.
