cover of Cormen, "Algorithms Unlocked"

Celebrating our 10,000th book!

We are proud to announce that Algorithms Unlocked is book number 10,000 in the MIT Press catalog. It has taken a while, our first book was published in 1926, but we couldn't be happier that Thomas Cormen carries the honor. He is, after all, a coauthor of our bestselling book of all time, Introduction to Algorithms. Congratulations!
