This is an EXCELLENT book for advanced undergraduate and beginnning graduate students who have a fair Math/Probability background. Much less technical than Fudenberg & Tirole, but much richer in real-life examples that one can relate to - without compromising on the fundamentals. Bite size chapters for easy gulping. RECOMMENDED!!

This is an excellent book on game theory where the author actually delves into some of the underlying mathematics. No pre-requisite knowledge of advanced mathematics is required as the author provides 3 chapters that take you from the basics to an intermediate level of knowledge of the mathematics that is used throughout the book. Other very good books on game theory, such as 'The Art of Strategy' and 'Game Theory at Work', have no mathemetics whatsoever and they come across more as psychology books. So they end up teaching you less about the underlying concepts of game theory. This book, on the other hand, has the academic rigour that underpins game theory so that you will know how and why it all hangs together. Given the choice, I would buy this book over any other book on game theory.

I have very fond memories of making my way through this book while taking Economics and Mathematics as University.

Everything is concise and down-to-earth. The author is clear and doesn't delve into formal proofs he (quite correctly) assumes the read will be able to obtain elsewhere. The end result is a clear, concise text mercifully devoid of abstrusion.

Great book, particularly as a reference or a brush up of concept.
