“This is the definitive book on networks, friendly enough for anyone to read and serious enough for researchers to find their way. [Newman] is one of the founders and leaders of the field and has updated the book with cutting-edge topics.” — *Santa Fe Institute*

“This is the definitive book on network science, by one of its most brilliant researchers and graceful expositors. The second edition of Mark Newman’s *Networks* is clear, comprehensive, and fascinating.” — *Steven Strogatz, Department of Mathematics, Cornell University, USA*

“This is an excellent textbook by one of the preeminent scholars in the study of networks. I draw heavily from it when teaching my undergraduate course on networks, and I am very pleased to see a new edition of the book. Newman’s clear exposition shines through in this textbook.” — *Mason Porter,* *Department of Mathematics, UCLA, USA*

“An extraordinarily comprehensive and clear exposition of network science from one of the giants in the field. Newman succeeds in making accessible to a broad readership even the most technical content.” — *Santo Fortunato, School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University*

“*Networks* accomplishes two key goals: It provides a comprehensive introduction and presents the theoretic backbone of network science. [] The book is balanced in its presentation of theoretical concepts, computational techniques, and algorithms. The level of difficulty increases which each chapter [which] makes the book particularly valuable to physics students who wish to acquire a solid foundation based on their knowledge of basic linear algebra, calculus, and differential equations.” — *Physics Today*

“Newman has written a wonderful book that gives an extensive overview of the broadly interdisciplinary network-related developments that have occured in many fields, including mathematics, physics, computer science, biology, and the social sciences … Overall, a valuable resource covering a wide-randing field.” — *Choice*

“Likely to become the standard introductory textbook for the study of networks […] Overall, this is an excellent textbook for the growing field of networks. It is cleverly written and suitable as both an introduction for undergraduate students (particularly Parts 1 to 3) and as a roadmap for graduate students. […] Being highly self-contained, computer scientists and professionals from other fields can also use the book – in fact, the author himself is a physicist. In short, this book is a delight for the inquisitive mind.” — *Computing Reviews*

“This book brings together, for the first time, the most important breakthroughs in each of these fields and presents them in a coherent fashion, highlighting the strong connections between work in different subject areas.” — *CERN Courier*
