Algorithms in C# - book recommendation!

Hello!

I'm starting to dive into algorithms in general (sorting, trees etc.) and am
currently reading a book from Robert Sedgewick called "Algorithms in C++,
3rd. Edition" and would like other book recommendations on algorithms,
perhaps less hardcore than this one.

Although very interesting, I realize I need to get a solid foundation before
fully understanding the advanced topic covered in that book and would ask
for recommendations here.

Obviously algorithms are very language agnostic, so I am kind of looking for
the general characteristics and thoughts behind the differenet algorithms
than real C# examples (although that would be perfect).

Thanks in advance!

Found this http://www.brpreiss.com/books/opus6/ here
http://www.techbooksforfree.com/

Haven't really looked at it myself, but it sounds like what you are after.

It looks like that online books is what I'm after - simpler than the C++ one
but with in-depth examples in C#. Thanks a lot - looking forward to reading
it this weekend :-)

It looks like the majority of algorithms of interest are included
in .NET, and they will be "upgraded" using C# generics "soon".

True, but it's always good to read stuff like this and have some
understanding of how the algorithms work in the first place.

Agree..

I have to admit that I've been though quite a lot of the code from
mscorlib.dll (:-)), but while code is great, explanatory text along the way
is a great thing. Looks like that online book is quite good actually!

Other book recommendations are still welcome btw.
