"A gem of a book. It makes some important insights on the frontiers of economics and game theory easily accessible, tremendously enjoyable, and practically useful." -- Buron G. Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street "Dixit and Nalebuff set out sure-fire rules for thinking about strategy." -- David Henderson "Machiavelli is brought up-to-date in this book by Dixit and Nalebuff. They make strategic tools humorous, human, and effective." -- Elizabeth Bailey, former dean, Graduate School of Industrial Administration, Carnegie Mellon University "I confess that I have never thought of monetary policy or government as a game, but Professors Dixit and Nalebuff succeed brilliantly in clarifying questions we all face in decision-making, elevated or mundane." -- Paul A. Volcker
