Ask HN: What are the top textbooks for data structures?

Algorithms, Robert Sedgewick and Kevin Wayne

Is my personal favorite.

CLRS is a great reference but learning algorithms from it is like trying to learn English by reading the dictionary.

It's great if you already know stuff and are looking for clarity or in the context of a course / class because someone has structured the curriculum already. But on its own is just a bunch of info.

Sedgwick and Wanye is easier to pickup and play from scratch with.
