Together with the learning videos on youtube, these books have become my goto repositories for algorithmic understanding.


If i could do it over, i would start with the pre-req material, namely math for computer science.


The book have all the appropriate theorems and it is scientifically complete, it doesn't only familiarize the reader with the a...  Read More

    Tim roughgarden pulls off the seemingly impossible.

    The implementation has to be really tight, and even the language used matters.
