I am currently writing a dissertation for my masters degree on the topic of snarks, and bought this book as background research material (the Petersen graph being the smallest snark). This is a brilliant book for anyone who wants a good background knowledge of algebraic graph theory (not just the Petersen graph). It is well written, the proofs are very well explained, and most of the theory is covered. You just need to be aware that it is a little out of date now, being written in 1993, and that some of the conjectures have now been proved. However, used in conjunction with more recent material, this is an excellent book. Highly recommended.

By its title, one might think that there isn't that much to say about just one graph, but its pages are crammed full of fact after fact, and is surprisingly interesting. If you think that you know enough about the Peterson graph, then I suggest you read this book because it will open up a realm of new ideas which will change your opinion of it completely!
