Item description for Understanding and Using Linear Programming (Universitext) by Jirí Matousek...
The book is an introductory textbook mainly for students of computer science and mathematics. Our guiding phrase is "what every theoretical computer scientist should know about linear programming". A major focus is on applications of linear programming, both in practice and in theory. The book is concise, but at the same time, the main results are covered with complete proofs and in sufficient detail, ready for presentation in class. The book does not require more prerequisites than basic linear algebra, which is summarized in an appendix. One of its main goals is to help the reader to see linear programming "behind the scenes".

Amazing linear programming book Oct 16, 2007
This is one of the greatest linear programming books I've ever read.
It sets out to teach linear and it only does that. It does not go into any neigbour topics and confuse the reader. It is also picky about the proofs it provides, only the necessary ones.
Finally, I also liked the way they introduced the simplex tableus. They completely avoided the more usual tableau look. Instead they only show the equations which form the tableau. This makes simplex much more understandable.
All in all, great book for new grad students in industrial engineering, computer science, etc...
