Graph theory is a beautiful branch of mathematics. It has strong interactions with combinatorics and important applications in optimization and computer science. The book above is ideal for a seminar. The material can be taken for seminar talks as it is. The book introduces into graph theory in a playful, but concise way. As the title claims, the material has been chosen very well. The proofs are the most beautiful ones. There are notions, theorems, exercises and pictures, pictures, pictures.

The seminar requires a general good mathematical understanding, but has little concrete prerequisites. It is suitable for all students in the bachelor or master Mathematics in Business and Economics and all students in the bachelor or master Education Mathematics.
