### Review from *Mathematika*

This book is a careful and thorough introduction to Graph Theory. It covers
all of the central topics in real depth, always giving plenty of motivation.
It also contains some fascinating material not normally found in textbooks,
such as Fleischner's theorem that the square of a 2-connected graph is always
Hamiltonian.

A highlight of the book is the chapter on graph minors, which contains what
is by far the best account in print of the Seymour-Robertson proof of Wagner's
Conjecture. It manages to convey the key ideas behind the proof, while at
the same time giving enough of the details that the reader gets a feel for
the actual methods involved. Not many authors could have accomplished this!
