I used the book to guide me through a Combinatorics class I took in the summer of 1998. The author has presented some very interesting problems like prove that of any 10 points chosen withen an equlateral triangle of side length 1, there are 2 whose distance apart is at most 1/3 that use some interesting techniques such as the pigeonhole principal. The book, however contained too many mistakes. My professor said on average there is one mistake per page and he wasn't exagerating either. Luckily with his help, we corrected the many mistakes and then were successfully able to use the book. I notice that the author has written a new edition. I hope most of the mistakes have been corrected because when I pay a good sum of money for a book I expect it to be good book without errors.
