12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By J. Conant on June 8, 2008
Format: Hardcover
The level of detail in this book is just right. It provides complete and rigorous proofs without getting bogged down in too much detail. In addition to some other knot theory standards, it has an excellent section on 3-manifold invariants arising from the Temperley-Lieb algebra. This book is appropriate for those who have a knowledge of algebraic topology.
