This practical book aims to help you get to grips with data structures and algorithms in a clear, concise, and engaging way.  Author Allen Downey emphasizes practical knowledge and skills over theory and shows how to use data structures to implement efficient algorithms, and then analyze and measure their performance. The book explores the important classes in the Java collections framework (JCF), how they're implemented, and how they're expected to perform.
