The Algorithm Design Manual by Skiena is pretty great.


It's nearly a third of the length of CLRS, and half of Sedgwick. Much more precise, yet offers more in that it talks about common problem solving uses cases with data structures and algorithms, rather than writing going through the theoretical proofs behind them.

I really love the war problems.
