Format: Paperback
This book is really good to learn game theory from. I would recommend the reader look at Gibbons "primer in game theory" and Osborne "introduction to game theory" which broadly cover the same material but with more examples and with slightly different notation.

After covering This book, you can easily go thtough Mas-Colell chapter 7,8,9 which is VERY vigorously covers the same topics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not For Beginners 13 Mar. 2015
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authors assume that you are quite familiar with game theory. Concepts and complex notations are just shortly introduced, discussions of varied topics often ended up quickly. Almost no motivation. Not suited for beginners. I would recommend the authors to write a more complete one, in which every step and each reasoning are clearly explained, and suited for a wider audience, while maintaining the same level of difficulty. After all, a book, to be a book, should be “readable”. But you may find the book a little boring if you to seat in the library reading it in details. Rather, it is written in a reference style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 1 May 2012
By Fang Jing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books ever written on game theory. I originally used it for my first year PhD microeconomics course as a reference and found it immensely helpful. Nowadays I still refer to it now and then during research. The authors also give excellent explanations of the economics, not just the math. A must have on the shelf of an economic theorist.

You can find electronic copies of the book and the solution manual on the authors' website: http://books.osborne.economics.utoronto.ca/. The authors also maintain a very comprehensive errata for all printings of the book: http://www.economics.utoronto.ca/osborne/cgt/.
4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book but dense 10 Feb. 2008
By T. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was assigned for a graduate economics class I'm taking. It's very good, very complete, introduces all of the important game theory concepts in a very sophisticated way and covers a lot of material, but it's very dense, it doesn't take a long time to explain things. It tell you how it is and moves on to the next topics. I like a lot of the examples, they're entertaining, but they don't do a lot of showing you how to solve games. For someone who is learning game theory for the first time, I liked a book that was used for teaching undergrads by Dixit and Skeath, I think it was called Games of Strategy. But for a more advanced coverage of the material, this book is very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Osborne's solo effort 10 Mar. 2009
By Trevor Burnham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ten years after this good came out, Osborne wrote An Introduction to Game Theory, a more comprehensive and focused book that also takes a more leisurely pace and provides more concrete problems. Some have said that this book is better suited to graduate students, while "An Introduction" is more appropriate to undergrads. Speaking as someone who's taken game theory at both an undergraduate and graduate level, I don't see any advantage to this book in either context. It is concise, yes, but it is also dense and suffers from the authors' disagreements over several fundamental issues.

If you are looking for an advanced textbook in game theory, then I'd strongly recommend Ken Binmore's recent effort, Playing for Real. It's wide-ranging and rich in challenging problems.
