I like the book I have both the print edition and the Kindle edition So far I found two errors in the Kindle edition that are not in the print edition, and I am only on Chapter One For a text in Discrete Mathematics this is a little disturbing.Suggested errata 1 page 12, Theorem 1.6, replace contains a u l path with contains a u v path 2 page 15, last paragraph, requires a symbolic correction replace If uv is not an element of E G with If

This is about as intro of a course to Graph theory that you can find Even if you know graph theory this actually has alot of coverage I have not seen in many texts.It is extensive of treatment than you will find in a discrete math textbook This has both some of the standard metaphors employed in texts and a few very good orginal metaphors.Where this book really shines is the author really drives home how to transform applied problems into graph

I will offer a brief review from the perspective of an instructor I like this text quite a bit It covers all the fundamental topics one would expect to see in an intro graph theory course In fact, there is than enough material to fit in one semester Also, there are enough challenging excursions for interested and or talented students The exercises follow the typical order, that being relatively easy to difficult Overall, a good book with a clear and p

A gift so no personal opinion Seems well liked.
