Stanley No preview available – There are over exercises, all with solutions or references to solutions, many of which concern previously unpublished results.
As a final note I would like to remark that this book is very reasonably priced, especially when you consider the wealth of material it contains.
As a final note, the exercises in this book are also helpful and of diverse difficulty levels–and Stanley classifies the exercises by their difficulty level. The proofs are such, that after some thinking one can understand them – and they are always rigorous.
Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. Awesome book to read for a math major! The presentation clearly comes from an author who just loves to “count”, and is an expert at it. Students wanting an easier-to-follow text might want to check out Cameron’s “Combinatorics”, or Wilf’s “Generatingfunctionology”.

I would recommend this book only to someone who has a strong background in mathematics and wants a challenging text that can take them to a deeper level of understanding. Stanley Limited preview – I would still recommend volume II to anybody seriously interested in combinatorics, but it is definitely harder than volume I Overall, my rating remains at “full score”!
