This is a solid text for algorithmic analysis that for the most part is at just the right level for most students -- neither too theoretical nor too superficial for the important topics. The graph algorithms material is a nice improvement over the earlier edition. I've used this book as an instructor many times and most serious students have found it to be an effective complement to the material presented in class.
Easily the worst book on algorithms I have ever been exposed to, it is the polar opposite of the excellent CLRS Algorithms text. Short, opaque, unintelligible, and an all around indictment of the authors involved. To be avoided at all costs.
