I think this is an excellent book for the introduction to game theory. Its language is not too complicate and very effective, also thanks to the many examples. There are useful guided exercises that explain how to approach and solve problems and a lot of exercises of different difficulty that put into practice and strengthen concepts learned throughout the chapters.

Witty and clear 20 Feb. 2009
By Nimrod Grinvald - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As far as economics textbooks go, this one is very readable. Its treatment of the subject is clear and reasonably rigorous on the undergraduate level. The author is also quite witty.

Disappointing 9 Jun. 2012
By Wilson - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was the required text for the Open Yale Course on Game Theory. I did not think it was well written and is not easy to follow. Chapter 3's Terminology and Notation section is especially bad. The organization of the book's chapters don't seem to have any rhyme or reason, with some chapters being only two pages long. This came as a surprise to me after reading the reviews for this book. There are no answers in the book for the exercises so you can't be sure if you have correctly understood the lesson. They said that guided exercises were added, but they are really part of the lesson and there is no way you can practice or test yourself with the single guided exercise. What is most glaring is that the book doesn't even mention Evolutionary Stable Strategies. How can a text on Strategy ignore that completely? The only saving grace is that the examples are more realistic than the Open Yale Course, but who cares as long as you learn the lesson. I would not have bought the book and would have stuck with the Open Yale videos alone if I had known.

Great and easy to follow 13 Oct. 2010

I found this book well worth my money. It's quite accessible and has great examples. I like the guided problem sets. I just wish the exercises had an answer key. They're great practice.

Straight forward text on Game Theory 4 Oct. 2012
By Thirdman - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Good paired with the less mathematical "Thinking Strategically" by Nalebuff and Dixit for broader applications. The exercises at the ends of chapters sometimes require looking outside the book, I think, especially for some three-player games.
Did the Job 13 Jan. 2013

Could be clearer at times, but definitely did the job. Exercises were always deliberately harder than examples to make you think. An excellent text if you have an instructor.
