Shelves: technical, textbook
This is an excellent algorithms textbook. Levitin presents a large number of classic algorithms effectively without presenting source code. The failure to present source is one of the strongest points in the text, forcing the reader to develop their own implementation rather than simply using the author's code. Another great feature of the book is organizing the algorithms by solution strategy rather than problem domain. Many texts will present several strategies for solving a class of problems. ...more

Pretty good introduction to algorithms. The writing style wasn't overly dry or boring. The explanations usually made sense, but occasionally felt lack in details. Some of the problem questions were quite difficult and sometimes seemed unrelated to the on page instruction material. The solutions manual helped me understand most of the difficult problems, but some were still ambiguous. This is a good textbook for use with a class, but perhaps not so great for self-learning unless you can find a co ...more

This book is the greatest written book on algorithmic thinking. Among hundreds of topics taught in Computer Science program, I fell madly in love with one topic and that is because of this book. The book introduced me to my girlfriend -- algorithms or algorithmic thinking. I went to Ph.D. in Algorithms because of this love. I credit this book in teaching me the art and science of algorithmic thinking to nail real-life problems.
Concise chapters, engaging writing style, and fun historical asides. I appreciated the pseudocode throughout the book and the exercise hints in the back of the book. I did have to resort to internet videos for some of the concepts, so this book is not a one-stop shop. However, it's still one of the better computer science textbooks out there. ...more

Wish the book took a more straight forward approach to each algorithm. Feels like it jumps around.
