Yet, the book is an awful failure. The biggest mistake the authors have made is to incorporate mathematical notations that a non-mathematics major, lay person could not understand without having to resort to wikipedia, or a long-time no see you old math-major, friend. The notations used by the authors just don't make sense for a lay reader, and the authors do not even bother to explain them.
Do not buy this book. There are better ones, like Games of StrategyGames of Strategy by Dixit, or Introduction to game theory Introduction to Game Theory: International Editionby Martin Osborne

Very often, concrete examples illustrating the maths behind the ideas could illuminate the mathematical notations to a non-mathematicians, and if the next edition could incorporate that, that will be most helpful to the non-mathmaticians.
The topic of Baysian Games was not covered, which was a bit of a disappointment, as it is one of the books recommended by the professors teaching the course on Game Theory in Coursera, and that subject, Baysian Games was covered in the course, so I was hoping that this book would expend on that topic, but it wasn't covered in this book.
