I was wondering if there is an online source where I can find the latest book releases on theoretical computer science issues?

And I mean quality books and papers on new and upcoming issues from famous authors. The amazon and other mainstream pages seem not to tend to those insider tip books I am searching for. Although I know there are famous best books out there as well.

They can also be written in a not so scientific and educational way as well. The specification is, so to say, to present the knowledge in the best known way.

You are also invited to comment this question with titles of the latest or "best" books on algorithms which you would recommend (I am looking for them at the moment).

I hope this question belongs to this board somehow - sorry if not.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to cstheory, a Q&A site for research-level questions in theoretical computer science (TCS). Your question does not appear to be a research-level question in TCS. Please see the FAQ for more information. Perhaps cs.stackexchange.com is a better Q&A site for your question. However I bought the latest edition of many (really good) books on advanced topics on Amazon :-)... for the latest research issues take a look to the many TCS journals or simply make a Google search to find research papers on the subject $\endgroup$ Mar 15, 2014 at 12:03

    $\begingroup$ :) I am sure, that you are able to buy all the books on amazon. My problem is merely, to find a good overview. So google was my choice before I posted this question. I thought there might be sombody out there, who has already collected/assambled such book titles and services them from time to time ... $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think that this list from Lance Fortnow is GREAT, and you can also take a look to this question on cstheory. $\endgroup$ Mar 15, 2014 at 12:58

    $\begingroup$ You can simply click "flag", and let the moderators know you'd like the question to be migrated to Computer Science. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ a great resource if it existed. there is a big difference between classic books (in link) and recent books. all the publishers tend to have lists incl recent releases but not stdized (one would have to hunt for each publisher). dont know of a way to do it in general. dont know of a review column for recent books but some cs societies/mags have a book review column. there is a very good Notices AMS book review column that sometimes covers recent CS books. bloggers sometimes cover recent books. see the TCS feed known by insiders, it will sometimes cover books. $\endgroup$
