first of all i dont know whether this is the correct section to post my question..
i came across this book "Data Structures and Algorithms in Java",as a fresher and java learner will this reading anyway benefit me in job interviews.
i agree that any book should be read by interest not for any benefit sake but if i take lack of time a reason then?
You should consider whether that is the best algorithms book for you. Do you find it easy to read and understand? You should work through its examples. Nobody would every write their own List class but it is worth knowing how linked lists and array lists work internally. Then when somebody asks you a question about memory capacity and linked lists, you will understand it.

You should go to the Amazon link and see whether you can read sample chapters or pages. Why are you trying to buy the 2nd edition when there is a 4th edition available? Have you looked in our book review pages?
I do not think anybody can say, “This is the best book for you,” about any book.
