Why read it?

1 author picked Algorithm Design as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I’ve probably spent more time with this book than with any other technical book. It’s one of those books where you can get as much out of it as you like by revisiting the material at increasing levels of depth. I appreciate the conversational but rigorous tone, the solved examples, the false starts, the intuition that the authors build, and the applications of algorithm design to realistic problems. The Maximum Flow chapter is not to be missed.
