📚 Algorithms to Live By

What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of the new and familiar is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not. Computers, like us, confront limited space and time, so computer scientists have been grappling with similar problems for decades. And the solutions they’ve found have much to teach us.

Fascinating book on how the problems of computer science apply to “real life.”

I know about time/space trade-off with computers, but never considered how this can also apply to life. Or how some problems are wicked problems.

Whether you’re a computer science expert or not, the ideas presented will change how you view potential decisions.
