    The book helped me find what I needed to get over the mental obstacles I had about algorithms. It was a big help in my term paper.

    Excellent book. It's a very well written book with a hard to find proportion of theory and practice. Although Delphi-oriented, I think it's usefull for any programmer. Thanks to the author for making it available again.

    The book starts off with the basic ground work surrounding algorithms: what is a proof? Computer Science, Mathematics and theory, etc.. It basically answers the question why anyone should bother learning about algorithms and the complexity that surrounds this topic. The authors then take a rather unique approach to the theory behind algorithms by discussing program recursion and iteration. It seems a little odd, but it turns out to be a very good way to introduce readers to topic algorithms. Recursions is a topic covered in CS1 courses, and using that as the basis and introduction to algorithm design and correctness proof really reels in the reader and makes the topic easier to grasp.

    This book teaches fundamental algorithms that will improve your code.(unless you have Don Knuths mobile number). There are other books that cover the same material,(even the author calls it the 3rd best book on Algorithms!), but in my opinon it has two advantages over it's competitors for Delphi programmers. 1: It is written in a very accessible manner, without loss of rigour. 2: All examples are in Delphi.(Downloadable from authors website) No other Delphi book covers this subject with anything like the same depth & clarity. If you are serious about programming in Delphi this book will pay for itself in a matter of hours. It went out of print a couple of years ago and second hand copies were changing hands for literally hundreds of dollars. Buy, read, use, and be happy.

    "Excellent Algorithms book.. A must for delphi developers" If your a delphi developer and don't own this book. You should.. It covers a variety of classic algorithms in delphi. Well worth the money..

    "Knuth in a Nutshell for Delphi" This is the definitive book for those of us who want/need to apply the classic computer science algorithms in Delphi. Julian's excellent writing style applies the correct mix of theory and application while at the same time explaining and demonstrating why you should use one algorithm over another. If you are a serious Delphi developer, you need this book on your shelf.

    "Essential Reading." The Tomes of Delphi: Algorithms and Data Structures should be considered an absolutely essential read for any serious Delphi Developer. Even if you don't consider yourself an Algorithms person, this book draws together a huge volume of practical information about data structures and many aspects of programming that everyone should know about. You will be pushed outside the realms of your own knowledge with this book although not in an uncomfortable way as all concepts are explained with disarming ease. If you don't own it, you should.

    "Great to finally have this" I'm really enjoying this book, which is as close to a "fun read" on the subject matter as you're likely to find. I've learnt a lot from my two brief sessions with the book so far. I've been working in Delphi since version 1 and I rarely get pushed out of my "comfort zone" with it, but this book will certainly do that, albeit in a very non-scary and accessible way. Bravo.
