The Arf Invariant and the Jones Polynomia. Gross No award given. Each This volume is an introduction to mathematical knot theory – the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space.
In addition to some other knot theory standards, it has an excellent section on 3-manifold invariants arising from the Temperley-Lieb algebra. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

Winston marked it as to-read Jul 16, A selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to khot field, employing three distinct techniques: One of these items ships sooner than the other.
What may reasonably be referred to as knot theory has expanded enormously over the last decade, and while the author describes important discoveries from throughout the twentieth century, the latest discoveries such as quantum invariants of 3-manifolds – as well as generalisations and applications of the Jones polynomial – are also included, presented in an easily understandable style.
