When you want to read a good introductory book about algorithms and data structures the choice comes down to two books Introduction to Algorithms, Second Edition and this one I especially liked The Algorithm Design Manual because of the author s writing style, the war stories that are some clever and practical applications of the data structures and algorithms the author tries to teach you and the second half part of the book which is a sort of encyclopedia of problems.I used the introduc When you want to read a good introductory book about...

In comparison to Introduction to Algorithms the other algorithm book I had significant exposure to this one is faster to read, easier to digest andtailored towards applications.I found the Hitchhiker s Guide to Algorithms in the back to be extremely useful if you really find yourself tackling an algorithmic problem in practice.The main part maybe skipping skimming down a few chapters is a very good preparation for algorithm heavy job interviews e.g Google, Facebook etc .Very In comparison to Introduction to Algorithms the other algorithm book I had significant exposure to this one is faster to read, easier to digest andtailored towards applications.I found the Hitchhiker s Guide to Algorithms in the back to be extremely useful if you really find yoursel...

This is not an introductory book You should have some previous knowledge of algorithms to enjoy it The book builds a way of thinking towards solving algorithms problems, instead of just stating the algorith...

This book is a practical, example driven book on computer science algorithms, which is very readable and has a wealth of ready to use examples The tutorial material in the first half of the book covers the essentials data structures such as lists, arrays, stacks, queues, binary trees, etc The book spends a lot of time emphasizing the utility of graph algorithms and how to model various classes of problems with them, as well as lot of time on dynamic programming and backtracking enumeration A This book is a practical, example driven book on computer science algorithms, which is very readable and has a wealth of ready to use examples The tutorial material in the first half of the book covers the essentials data structures such as lists, arrays, stacks, queues, binary trees, etc The book spends a lot of time emphasizing the utility of graph algorithms and how to model various clas...

I can t think of an occasion when I d recommend this over Intro to Algorithms CLRS It does a fraction of what CLRS does and worse in most cases And in the rest of the cases, it does them exactly the same There were some instances graph algorithms where the code in Skiena was taken straight out of CLRS Not only did CLRS explain the algorit...

Highly recommended for anyone interested in practical algorithm implementation.

A rare book on algorithms that is actually fun to read

Very good examples and explanations of algorithms that are commonly asked in interviews.

One of the best Algorithmic Design books out there not only does it approach every problem with the consideration of heuristic and through reasoning and demonstrations, but it also helps with writing simple code.What makes this book better than most other books about the topic is the scrupulous definition of each term, and the absurdly clear explanation of every problem and heuristic that s presented throughout the volume.Overall, i d definitely suggest this book to anyone interested in algorit One of the best Algorithmic Design books out there not only does ...

Excellent Book but obviously not for beginners You need to do refresher course in Algorithms or take one if you are graduating You will become good problem solver and algorithmist after completing this text Go for it if you want to challenge your algorithmic learning.
