Introduction to Graph Theory
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.

Brilliant book, well explained and really helps people understand the kind of thinking you need to do in order to start getting a grip of real mathematics. Graph Theory is a lot of fun.
Review: Introduction to Graph TheoryUser Review - Nick Black - Goodreads
Really too basic to be of any use save as a high-level survey. Besides, graph theory is merely topology's West End (and no, not the nice Londonian one) (disclaimer: I live in Midtown). Read full review
