I love going to their bookstores whenever I visit China. Unlike our major Canadian bookstores, they are actually stocked up with books. They have huge collections even for topics in Computer Science and Engineering, and prices are awfully cheap compared to North America.
I stumbled across this title, 算法问题实战策略, roughly translated as “Tactics on Algorithmic Problems”, a gem on programming competitions. Unfortunately for me, it is translated from Korean into Simplified Chinese and I am not aware of an English version. I bought it anyway because the author did a great job explaining the thought process of solving problems and discussing each practice problem.
I recommend this book to students and people preparing for coding interviews.
At least one blog post will be about a problem presented in the book. I will not be making explicit references to this book but I will tag the post with its title.
