Hello,
I would like some suggestions on algorithms books. I have seen some answers in this forum regarding this subject, but i have seen mostly java related books. I would like something that explains and presents algorithms from scratch, and it should not be a language based book, i'm looking for pseudocode-wise ones. Many thanks.
PS: It is ok to receive also info on more complex algorithms books, but i would like to start with the basics first.

I liked Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest a lot. It's language-agnostic.

Looks a good book, but maybe expensive.
Can you still download the Niklaus Wirth book free of charge?

It may be less expensive on the British Amazon site.

Yep, the https://coderanch.com/how-to/java/HereYouWillFindLinksToFreeStuff page links to it.
