This book is outstanding for understanding the theory and mathematical mechanics of LP and the first half of the book covers this comprehensively. The excercises in this book are outstanding (and can be hard). For those who need this book but are weak or rusty on the basics (like I was :) ) refer to one of the books above (I liked the Ignizio & Cavalier book a lot). I can't comment on the Network flows part of the book but it will almost surely be excellent if it is anything like the first half.
An excellent book for the intended audience.
While the linear programming part is quite strong on the traditional algorithms, it is a little weak on interior point algorithms. For network flows, I would suggest the book by Ahuja et al... not because this book is bad but simply because Ahuja's done an unbeatable job.
Bottomline: This book is the best there is for a strong background in linear programming. If you are interested in theory look up Schrijver's "Theory of Linear and Integer Programming".
The network material was acceptable. I personally thought the text problems were not of the best quality. I would suggest a teacher supplement their own favorites outside of the book.
One caution is that the book is somewhat aged. I noticed a text like Nash and Sofer seems to have newer updates on the theory.
Overall, a great read for getting into the nitty gritty details of LP.
