Takes no prisoners,
This review is from: Purely Functional Data Structures (Paperback)
I found that this exposition of data structures nothing short of masterful. Their is no superfluity in this book. Some parts require reading and rereading (sometimes for a few hours or more) so it unlikely to be a short read for most people, but a most rewarding one certainly.
A quantitative background is almost a pre-requisite here, and fluency in elementary data structures mandatory. But there again this is this books audience.
It has no competition but a second edition would be great (and ditch the SML).
