Dear David Kopec,

Since there are myriad of algorithms,  which criteria did you apply to pick up those in your book ?

Thanks.

Have you looked in the contents to see what the algorithms are? They are all well‑known, classic, as in the title. It even includes SEND MORE MONEY.

There's an extended justification in the Introduction, but in short we chose problems that everyone who has a CS undergraduate degree would be familiar with. Then, when we ran out of those, we went with CS problem solving techniques that we think everyone should be familiar with that builds software, and designed problems around them. Thanks for the question.

Let me tell you that I found the choice of algorithms in your book quite interesting and well balanced, I think that your book is worth reading.
