This paper gives a general overview of fault-tolerant quantum computation. It gives a section of topological quantum computation, which is essentially a word for word copy of

> Walter Ogburn, R., and John Preskill. "Topological quantum computation." NASA International Conference on Quantum Computing and Quantum Communications. Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1998.

Thus, I would suggest anyone trying to learn TQC to read Ogburn and Preskill's other work.
