Look no further if you're looking for way to bridge the stuff from computer science courses to the pragmatic world of software development.
As a software engineer, you’ll encounter countless programming challenges that initially seem confusing, difficult, or even impossible. Don’t despair! Many of these “new” problems already have well-established solutions. Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures teaches you powerful approaches to a wide range of tricky coding challenges that you can adapt and apply to your own applications. Providing a balanced blend of classic, advanced, and new algorithms, this practical guide upgrades your programming toolbox with new perspectives and hands-on techniques.
Data structures and algorithms are the foundations for how programs store and process information. Choosing the optimal algorithms ensures that your programs are fast, efficient, and reliable.
Advanced Algorithms and Data Structures introduces you to a diverse range of algorithms you’ll use in web applications, systems programming, and data manipulation. Chapter-by-chapter, the book expands on the basic algorithms you’ll already know to give you a better selection of solutions to different programming problems. In it, you’ll discover techniques for improving priority queues, efficient caching, clustering data, and more. Each example is fully illustrated with graphics, language-agnostic pseudo-code, and code samples in various languages. When you’re done, you will be able to implement advanced and little-known algorithms to deliver better performance from your code. You’ll even have the skills to design your own data structures to solve those cases when a custom solution is required.

The examples given are quite interesting and feel like real-world scenarios, not made-up artificial examples.
Very interesting and easy-to-understand book for programmers of all languages.
The flow of writing is methodical, making it easy to just trust the process and allow it to unfold.
A different and a great way to introduce algorithms and data structures that can be used at work.
Exposes one to new data structures/algorithms that software engineers normally don't encounter. Be prepared to expand you mind!
The author does a really great job of using these examples to help you understand how each algorithm works and why it's relevant to a particular problem.
Very well written, very clear and full of useful info.
Every chapter had something I was not aware of.
