GeneralAlgorithms and books, part 2 Pin

I finished the other book [^] and it really was fantastic, but since it is only about 230 pages it did go fast and didn't cover quite as much as I wanted.

Also, I already started forgetting the things I read. I will go back and take notes, but I also wanted to read another but slightly more in depth. Not so easy to find.

I've been looking around and I thought I was going to read either:
1) Algorithms in a Nutshell: A Practical Guide 2nd 2016 (O'Reilly): Heineman, Pollice, Stanley Selkow[^]

However, I read the free introductory sample and they just jump right in and are not real clear.

Then I thought I'd read:
2) Algorithms 2011 (4th Edition): Sedgewick, Wayne[^]

I've been seeing that Sedgewick book for at least 20 years. I remember the old C++ edition and I've never been able to get far into it. I decided to try again and I read the long sample.
This book was so focused on every little detail of Java that it just burned me out on it.

I want someone to begin at the beginning of Algorithmic Thinking and go on from there. That's what the first (Pragmatic) book did.
This One
Well, I found another. It's longer than the Pragmatic one (goes into more depth, covers more topics) and is by a great author Rod Stephens:

Essential Algorithms: A Practical Approach to Computer Algorithms Using Python and C#: Rod Stephens: 2nd ed. May 2019[^]

This has been very recently updated and uses C# and Python for examples (versus the Ruby Dead | X| ) from the Pragmatic one.

So far I'm enjoying this one as much as the Pragmatic one and looks to be even better.
This is definitely step two on the way to algorithm learning.

Have you read it?
