"Details developments in the theory of random graphs over the past decade, providing a much-needed overview of this area of combinatorics." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 24, No. 4, December 2000)
The book is well written, and the material is well chosen. (Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, Volume 33, 2001)
"It is fifteen years since Bollobas's monograph appeared, and this new definitive work should take us through the next fifteen. Such is the importance and appeal of this book that is should find its way onto the shelves no only of those working directly in the area of random graphs, but also anyone with a more general interest in combinatorics, probability theory, or certain aspects of computer science." (Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2001k)
"...a beautiful presentation of new developments in the asymptotic theory of random graphs." (Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 968, 2001/18)
"An introduction to the subject as well as a resource for those working in the field." (American Mathematical Monthly, January 2002)

Inside This Book(Learn More)
The notion of a random graph originated in a paper of Erdos (1947), which is considered by some as the first conscious application of the probabilistic method. Read the first page

Furthermore, many proofs are delegated to "Excercises!", but no solutions are given.
Thirdly (at least for me, I am not a professional mathematician), the presentation is at very uneven levels: Very easy derivations and extremely hard derivations are mixed together, it seems the authors have little feel for the difficulty of their exposition.
On the positive side: The book is vitually typo-free, and the section on inequalities is much clearer -actually very good!- than the one in Prof. Bollobas's book.
A curious aside: two pages (pages 180, 181) were simply missing, and they were also missing in a second copy I ordered. Neither Amazon, nor the publisher (Wiley) were of any help getting those two pages.
