I chose this rating because this book does everything that the title says. It is a non technical introduction that I found very easy to get into. It is a well written book which conveys ideas very clearly. I would recommend this to anyone with a passing/beginners interest in the subject of Game Theory.

The good: Some very practical apparatus as well as some great discussion of the limitations and fortes of the different approaches to solve the problems.
The bad: At times the examples juggle about excessively, it would perhaps be better if each chapter picked one type of scenario(military, business or political) and stuck with it instead of jumping about all the time. I personally found myself going back and fourth sometimes to remember a previous description.

This is my first book on game theory exclusively. I feel like this is a good book for those who will not pursue the matter further, its self-contained and discusses plenty of the approaches briefly enough to get the gist but without really setting up the mathematical basis to take it further.

I learned a lot from this. The difficulty level is nicely judged though it can be a bit dry at times.
Overall it lived up to its title.
