Overview


A stimulating excursion into pure mathematics aimed at "the mathematically traumatized," but great fun for mathematical hobbyists and serious mathematicians as well. Requiring only high school algebra as mathematical background, the book leads the reader from simple graphs through planar graphs, Euler's formula, Platonic graphs, coloring, the genus of a graph, Euler walks, Hamilton walks, and a discussion of The Seven Bridges of Konigsberg. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter. "The topics are so well motivated, the exposition so lucid and delightful, that the book's appeal should be virtually universal . . . Every library should have several copies" — Choice. 1976 edition.

The book is very diligently written. It has the perfect mix of mathematical formalism and good explanations to keep the formalism accessible.

I am greatly enjoying this book. While it is not the final authority on this subject, it is not meant to be. It is a very good introduction to graph theory and a very interesting read.
