## Reviews

*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

"Kamada provides a discussion of a great deal of important machinery and current approaches to both knot theory in the more familiar and prosaic sense as well as the more exotic surface-knot theory, the book's main focus. ... is well-written, theorems are plentiful and proven, there are a huge number of diagrams and pictures ... there are lots of examples, and there are even exercises. This book indeed looks like a good place to learn about surface knots in 4-space." (Michael Berg, MAA Reviews, December, 2017) Read more...
