Yeah, you should buy it and tell us the review.

I only have Competitive Programming 3 but I don't think it is worth buying. I feel like all information in there is covered by free sources.

I have seen the CP3 book and I feel it is good. Yes everything is available for free but the content in the book will be more structured and well organized. You'd be spending less time finding good resources and more time learning good concepts.

In short, if you can afford to buy the book and you wish to learn some good Algorithms/techniques why not support the author by paying few bucks :)

    Even if we are talking about books (structure and organization etc) I like Antti Laaksonen's free book better.

      No doubt, Competitive Programmer's Handbook is great!
