I've been hunting around for a while now for a book which teaches data structures using C++ as the implementation language. I think I've finaly found it in this book. All other books I've looked at have just been poor rewrites of previous C algorithm books.
The material is clearly explained most of the time, always with an example to show the algorithm at work. The book focuses on algorithms and data structures that you might actually use one day, unlike some other books which have all these wierd and wonderful algorithms but which you will probably never need to use.
This is the book to have when you start forgeting all that data structure stuff you did in college and you need a review.
The best thing about this book is that it's only ~350 pages so it wont take you years to get through.
