I read this book when I was 14, and it was for me the introduction to computer science, (and anything related to programming).

I think if you don't know anything about computer science, but you like mathematics,
and want to know what is an algorithm, you will find this book to be fascinating, and great introduction to computer science and algorithmic thinking.

A good book with good substance about the Algorithm field and the chapters about Probabilistic Algorithms and Algorithmics and Inteligence is a good reference to start.
