Data Structures in C by Adam Drozdek
Wojtekwalczak’s first review of the year
it was ok
I've had this book on my shelf for 15 years (since high school), and I tried to read it for a few times. This time I've managed! I don't think it was worth the effort, though. This book doesn't really explain things, it rather sets out the knowledge possessed by the authors. I definitely prefer Robert Sedgewick's books, or Thomas Cormen's et al. efforts at explaining data structures and algorithms.

Wojtekwalczak’s last review of the year
it was ok
Reading this book was tiresome. Imagine extracting the most technical pieces of hundreds of publications and piling them all together into a single book. This really is a prescription for unreadable manual, and that's unfortunately what has happened to "Deep Learning" book. I definitely prefer reading articles (including brilliant articles by the Authors of this book).
