Plain and simple: EXCELLENT book

This is a superb book for an introduction to graph theory. It is not just a pile of theorems as other books you'll find in this field. It presents insight and intuition first, and then it gives the necessary formal treatment. The topics covered are perfect, in the right order. Extremelly recommended for anyone eagerly wanting a first contact with this exciting field, as well as for any graph theory instructor looking for the right book to follow in class.

Pre-publication Review Missing

I visited amazon.com for the Wildfire book. The only reason I chose Sham's book was looking at the Table of Contents. This book covers all the major portions of Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire. Good work on Surface modeling chapter that I downloaded for free from the author's website. Buy this book if you want to learn Wildfire.

Title: Red Hat Fedora Linux 3 Bible

Great book for the latest Linux software

When software doesn't work in Linux, everyone (who cares to) can see the code, debug the problem, and help get it fixed. A reviewer of this book described how a particular Fedora 2 install failed. Following up on how the problem was fixed illustrates the open source software model at its best.
The bug the reviewer encountered was reported to Red Hat by others at bugzilla.redhat.com too late to make the final Fedora 2 release. Nearly 200 comments were entered on the bug, allowing a developer at Red Hat to provide a quick fix. (Search there for bug 121819 and see comment 122, if you have the same problem.) After Fedora is installed, the permanent fix is available to be downloaded with a single command (yum update kernel).
Once you get past the installation (as most will without trouble), you'll see that this most recent version of the Red Hat Linux Bible (Fedora 2) reflects the latest features available today for Linux. Red Hat wasn't kidding when it said it wanted to do rapid development of cutting-edge Linux technology. Fedora Core 2 includes:
* The latest Linux 2.6 kernel* New desktop (X.org server, KDE, and GNOME)* ALSA sound system* New Security Enhanced Linux* Many other new features
Fedora Core 2 will run faster as a desktop and more securely as a server. If you want an edge learning the latest features slated for Red Hat's enterprise Linux products, this book includes the complete Fedora Core 2 distribution on four CDs and detailed instructions on how to use it as a desktop or server system.
