    Data Structures book

    An acquaintance has asked me for advice regarding a book on Data Structures - preferably using C++. However, my data structure books date from the 1970's/1980's and largely use Pascal!

    Looking on Amazon, there's a wide selection with some prices over 100 for one book! Would some guru recommend a modern Data Structures book that covers not only theory but also in-depth implementation detail (preferably in C++) - and in particular trees, priority queues and graphs (as well as the basic stack, queue, lists etc). Or conversely, recommend which book(s) not to buy/consider.

    Thanks for any advice.
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

Also note that I only provide advice and guidance via the forums - and not via private messages!

    Re: Data Structures book

    I like Advanced Data Structures by Peter Brass. I see it's coming soon in a (relatively) cheap paperback version but the book is also available on the internet for free,

    I recently bought Algorithms to Live By, by Christian & Griffith. It's about algorithms but from a non-technical angle. Still it could qualify as textbook in some honors course. It gives a broader perspective and insight,
