Any effort along this direction?
Time to replace Knuth books :-) Same fate as of GOF book, once HF version was released.

Head First Algorithms

I think that would be so cool. I would like them discussing structures and tree search algorithms and bla bla bla

'In a couple months' after an oracular Bert Bates 'Hmmmm' would not be merely amazing. Closer to miraculous.

I wonder whether Donald Knuth is available.... Hmmmm.

I can't wait to see the fights between QuickSort and HeapSort - how each one claims to be better than the other but at the end both are happy that they have O(n log n).

Stacks and queue argue for whole day - then arrives linkedlist- laughs at them on how they suck at removing mid items

oh boy...list goes on...

I did an audition for this title. Unfortunately after 5 takes the publisher decided not to continue with me. So I would appreciate any feedback I can get on my audition chapters to hear what's wrong with them.
They can be found here:
Thanks to anyone taking the time to comment on my audition.
I agree. Here's the link:
