3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting yet all over the place, 4 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prisoner's Dilemma: John Von Neumann, Game Theory and the Puzzle of the Bomb (Paperback)
I found this book a little to categorise (it wasn't quite what I expected). The book could be:
- an introduction to game theory and the prisoner's dilemma (which is what the title suggests)
- a biography of John von Neumann, the mathematician / academic
- a history of the Cold War from the perspective of the genuine fear of nuclear holocaust

The book is definitely interesting to read and it does connect the three subjects above together but I'm not really sure it's what I wanted to read. Certainly von Neumann was a key contributor to game theory and was employed by the US government in the drive to build a nuclear bomb but somehow the book misses something
