While I do not believe, that this book is suitable as a first introduction to combinatorics, it is a great book for anyone, who is interested in the subject and has had some prior exposure.

The formal mathematical prerequisites are quite minimal. The proofs are such, that after some thinking one can understand them - and they are always rigorous.

If one some occasions, the author would have given a short hint, instead of simply saying "it is easily seen" this would have made the book even more r...more
