I actually bought this as a "text book" when I was in college (UC Irvine). Lucky me as I had this professor for the class... And he was DEFINITELY one of the best professors I had in college (top 10 of all teachers and best ever in computer science).

The text is a little on the dry side since it IS a text book, but it has some wonderful descriptions of the different... well... "data structure techniques"! Brilliant idea for a title, no?

I kept it for a quite a while and did refer to it from time to time, but I no longer write software and don't need it anymore. Too bad I didn't think to have him autograph it (dang!).
