@qu:Intended for a broad range of readers, including undergraduate students and researchers. Can be read by a mathematician not yet familiar with graph theory, but will also be of interest to researchers since it contains many recent results and partial solutions to some unsolved problems. @source:American Mathematical Monthly @qu:This monograph should appeal to both researchers and students. It contains enough material for an undergraduate or graduate graph theory course which emphasizes eulerian graphs. But it is also of interest to researchers because it contains many recent results. @source:L'Enseignement Mathematique @from:R.J. Wilson @qu:The style is clear and lively throughout, and the book contains many exercises and a lengthy bibliography. @source:Mathematical Reviews
