A different and a great way to introduce algorithms and data structures that can be used at work.
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. Algorithms and Data Structures in Action 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.
Algorithms and Data Structures in Action 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.
