This book was used for an algorithms class for which I was the TA. My experience suggests that students who lack sufficient grounding in discrete math will have trouble with some concepts as the book speeds past them without giving any supplementary explanation.

That said, if I were teaching algorithms in a classroom setting I'd probably still use this book and supplement it with lectures where it falls short on deep details.

If you're looking for a book to pick up on your own it all depends on your math background. You might find yourself using Google frequently to clarify things, or you might be just fine.
