I really like the BGL book!
What strikes me the most is the accessibility - the introductions hit the
right key immediately, so there's really no need to keep reference material
at hand. The samples are equally good, and they're the right size to be
easily transformed into solutions to related problems. The book currently
rests on my bedside table, and only my favorites make it there...
The Boost Graph Library is powerful, and the BGL book is an excellent
companion for graph-related studies or real-world graph problem solving.
Room for improvements:
* The index
* More proofreading :-)
* Even more samples (maybe not so elaborate in the text, could be on the CD)
* Some more graph theory
Finally: I like the book a lot, and even if you're not "a graph person",
chances are that you will be after reading the BGL book.
I highly recommend it!
