“As we learn from the preface, [Ramsey Theory: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow] grew out of an intentionally non-traditional conference on Ramsey theory. In accordance with that, the book itself is far from being a traditional textbook or reference book on the subject…We learn far more about the history of Ramsey theory than from other sources…the promise of discussing the future is fulfilled by a very extensive list of open problems contributed by numerous participants. Sometimes it is not even clear what the best way of asking a certain question is, and we are shown the raw form of the problem, just as we would if we participated at a conference…the book is undoubtedly a lot of fun. As one expects from a book on Ramsey theory, it is full of problems that are very easy to formulate, but terribly hard to solve…[the book] could well be used for a course using a seminar format, or for self-study by a graduate student familiarizing himself with the subject.”      —MAA Reviews
