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.
