Sitting in my ever-cluttered office, the idea of one day having the time to sort out my bookshelves seems a wonderful, but likely unattainable dream. But suppose something magical happens — what would be the quickest way to get my books organized?
The video below sets up the following situation: you work in a library and a shipment of 1,280 books arrives. You need to get them in alphabetical order as quickly as possible. It then walks through different sorting methods: a bubble sort, insertion sort, and a quick sort. At the end, the comparison is made to how these methods relate to computational algorithms used to sort data.
