Programming Pearls (Jon Bentley)

Programming, 8/10 – Aug 2007

The chapters on algorithms and efficiency (performance, code tuning and space tuning) make this book brilliant. The explanation and benchmarking of the different sorting and searching technique’s (especially quicksort) are almost fundamental reading for anyone that has a programming interview with a top company.

Beware, in amongst the pearls there are some poos (some parts are a little dull) – In fact, on one page, it actually says: “Warning Boring Material ahead”.
