This is the book that separates amateurs from the professionals. One should do their homework and sorting and searching before trying to execute any programs in any kind of language.
Although the book itself is so dated there is not a better definitive description of what is required for sorting and searching which is the main core in the power of computers. Even with today’s cognitive computing thrust the cognitive programs have to still sort and search.
I periodically get this book off the shelf and cruise it to find out what it is that I forgot were to brush up on new techniques for new projects.
This book is well worth the purchase price before contemplating any new projects. After which it makes a great reference book.
