Thanks for your inside view.
What I am able to figure out from your message(s) is that reading 
Sedgewick still requires time and some++ background knowledge,while 
Weiss (at least in his most recent book) : Algorithm Analyses is 
somewhat weak, or let's say the didatic part is weak .

Regarding Weiss : I hope we are talking about the same book :
I mean Data Structures and Problem Solving and *not* Data Structures and 
Algorithm Analyses.
Anyway, your informations are very usefull for me. Thanks a lot!
