Comments about this book:
Two obvious comparisons: Knuth’s TAOCP is wonderful but: very, very long; now rather outdated in the range of algorithms it covers; describes algorithms with wordy descriptions, flowcharts, and assembly language for a computer of Knuth’s own invention. When you need Knuth, you really need Knuth, but mostly you don’t. Sedgwick’s Algorithms (warning: it’s many years since I read this, and recent editions may be different) is shallower, less clearly written, and frankly never gave me the same the-author-is-really-smart feeling that CLRS does.
(If you’re going to get two algorithms books rather than one, a good complement to CLRS might be Skiena’s “The algorithm design manual”, more comments on which you can find on my website.)” – Posted by gjm at http://lesswrong.com/lw/3gu/the_best_textbooks_on_every_subject/ – by Books2Learn – 2018-02-27
