5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and no fuss, 9 Jun 2007
By 
This review is from: Game Theory for Applied Economists (Paperback)
I've worked with a handful of game theory books till now, and this one is by far the best. It helps to know some maths (as opposed to the book by Osborne which has much less math, but is much less readable nonetheless), but don't let this frighten you - this book uses examples all the way and is very easy to follow for the beginner.

The one annoying thing is that there are no solutions to the many problems provided, which would be a great help to the student. Apart from this nuisance, this book is highly recommended.

The reader should be aware that this is the American version, and that the same book is published in Europe as "A Primer in Game Theory". As far as I know there is no difference beyond title and cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clealy the best game theory book till now., 17 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Game Theory for Applied Economists (Paperback)
Mas-Collel et alia, Fudenberg & Tirole, Myerson Rubinstein & Osborne have to do a lot of work to write a Game theory book as good as this one!!. Only Kreps and perhaps Rasmusen do not write as obscure and incomptehensible as the above cited authors. Anyway, congratulations Robert, you beat them all!!
