1.0 out of 5 stars Product is defective, missing pages
By Matthew on September 18, 2019
After getting into the book, I realized it was missing ~50 pages. Chapters 8-16. I contacted the publisher about 2 weeks ago, but got no response.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, depending on your experience. Some pages missing though
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 7, 2021
Pages from 107 to 118 missing, so no graphs and bit manipulation topics for me 🙂
Other than that, some useful advices and approaches how to solve problems. But definitely it should not be seen as a single thing you need to do for interview preparation. It’s a good book but not a magic pill, and nothing is 🙂 Of course if you’ve already solved couple of hundreds problems on leetcode you’ll be bored.
