In the concrete, however, the arrangement of these vertices and edges within a drawing affects its understandability, usability, fabrication cost, and aesthetics.
Graphs and Networks: Multilevel Modeling, 2nd Edition
Graphs are frequently drawn as node—link diagrams in which the vertices are represented as disks, boxes, or textual labels and the edges are represented as line segments , polylines , or curves in the Euclidean plane. In the case of directed graphs , arrowheads form a commonly used graphical convention to show their orientation ;  however, user studies have shown that other conventions such as tapering provide this information more effectively.
Alternative conventions to node—link diagrams include adjacency representations such as circle packings , in which vertices are represented by disjoint regions in the plane and edges are represented by adjacencies between regions; intersection representations in which vertices are represented by non-disjoint geometric objects and edges are represented by their intersections; visibility representations in which vertices are represented by regions in the plane and edges are represented by regions that have an unobstructed line of sight to each other; confluent drawings, in which edges are represented as smooth curves within mathematical train tracks ; fabrics, in which nodes are represented as horizontal lines and edges as vertical lines;  and visualizations of the adjacency matrix of the graph.
Many different quality measures have been defined for graph drawings, in an attempt to find objective means of evaluating their aesthetics and usability.

In addition, the placement and routing steps of electronic design automation EDA are similar in many ways to graph drawing, as is the problem of greedy embedding in distributed computing , and the graph drawing literature includes several results borrowed from the EDA literature. However, these problems also differ in several important ways: for instance, in EDA, area minimization and signal length are more important than aesthetics, and the routing problem in EDA may have more than two terminals per net while the analogous problem in graph drawing generally only involves pairs of vertices for each edge.

I assigned a weight of 1 to each mentor, which is distributed equally among their recommended books, i. The size of a book node is then calculated as the sum of its incoming edges multiplied by its in-degree, i. The weight of an author in turn is the sum of all edge weights with their books as targets multiplied by the number of mentors who recommended at least one of their books. The people interviewed in Tribe of Mentors come from different backgrounds, are good at different things and recommend different books.

The mentors in the graph named different books by different authors adding up to nodes some are both authors and mentors and edges. The resulting disconnected graph has just a few nodes which stand out, most notable Viktor E.
Frankl and his book Man' Search for Meaning. The 2nd largest author node is Timothy Ferriss himself, who authored 2 books that were recommended by several mentors. A handful of other books were recommended multiple times, but the vast majority are named just once.
