I had used CLRS many times to explain algorithms to non-CS students and collaborators who almost always preferred dynamically typed scripting languages like python and to be honest were scared of ints and floats. Vazirani is the GOAT.

What I like most about this book is that it contains tons of interesting, real-world examples and exercises that make the theory so much more fun.

From my experience, I recommend using CLRS as c.h.papadimitrilu aid for rigorous study and Vazirani for less rigorous, but very effective learning.

I didn’t truly “get” algorithms until I stopped bashing my head against this wall and started reading CLRS. It’s not as rigorous as CLRS it doesn’t spend as much time on proving correctness mathematicallybut as an implementer of algorithms, I find Skiena to be more useful on a day-to-day basis than CLRS.


Vazirani is an excellent choice algoritums this regard.

I’d tried studying from both CLRS and this text (S. Dasgupta, C. H. Papadimitrio | Hacker News

Skiena talks about caveats and pitfalls that come up when attempting to implement the algorithm on real hardware e. But your argument does hold true when one is dealing with things like sorting or graph traversal algorithms. C.h.papadimihriou aside, those reviews seem to be from people who’ve tried to use Vazirani as their sole Algorithms text.

Since reading the book, I don’t do it any other way. Also take a look at Sedgewick’s Algorithms in Java series – http: You’ve pointed to the 3 one-star reviews instead of the 17 five-star reviews of the book.

Another excellent algorithms book that never seems to get any attention is Udi Manber’s “Introduction to Algorithms: Although the coverage is good for the price and size of this volume, it really does lack in the amount of pseydocode listings as well. At the same-time some of them were very good in algorithm design, and came up with clever algorithmic ways to solve the problem at hand much more efficiently.

Yes it’s concise and doesn’t explain every detail, but that’s what makes it good. This situation happens a few critical times in the text. Though I agree to most of what you said, for learning algorithms you need not think about low level memory management.

Get the MIT press algorithms book if you need a reference text. At some point, then, you’re going to have to prove it.

Most things were pretty clear, and the chapter on NP-completeness ties everything together nicely when it discusses reductions.
