12 Best Algorithms Books of All Time

Our goal: Find what the internet ranks as the best Algorithms books (instead of one person's opinion).

Our process:
1. Search for "best algorithms books" and study the top 5 articles.
2. Add only the books mentioned 2+ times.
3. Rank the results neatly for you here! 😊
(This took a long time, but we do the research so you don't have to!)
