Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

SIAM REVIEW

"The narrative and proofs are well written, and the authors are given to frequent uses of humor. Students should find this book as easy to read as any other good-quality text written with them in mind. Each of the three chapters concludes with several paragraphs describing an excellent selection of more advanced texts or papers to consider for further study"

From the reviews of the second edition:

“Any undergraduate work in combinatorics or graph theory, whether a course or independent study, would likely be well served by this textbook … . The authors offer a wide selection of topics, often in more depth than other undergraduate texts, in an engaging and clear style. … Each chapter concludes with extensive notes on further reading.” (Brian Hopkins, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 b)

“Combinatorics and Graph Theory is a popular pair of topics to choose for an undergraduate course. … The book is written in a reader-friendly style and there are enough exercises. … It is certainly good that someone took the effort to write … in a form that is appropriate for undergraduates. … the book will most often be used for a reading class by a student who already has a background in combinatorics and who wants to learn about the set theoretical aspect of it.” (Miklo's Bóna, SIGACT News, Vol. 40 (3), 2009)

“This undergraduate textbook contains three chapters: Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Infinite Combinatorics and Graphs. … There is a short section on References in each chapter introducing briefly other books dealing with the topics covered in the respective chapter. A full list of 293 references, about 550 exercises and an index with 13 pages are also provided.” (Dalibor Froncek, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1170, 2009)
