Trivia About Game Theory: Not as challenging as Myerson or von Neumann and Morgenstern. You have to be able to present your information in a package designed to be broad in scope, but small in application.

Not surprisingly, the book is best when covering the author’s speciality – auctions. Sep 28, Chaitanya Sethi rated it it was ok Shelves: So it lives up to its name. View all 4 comments. I found myself glazing over so many pages, the explanations were not good, and I just didn’t enjoy it.

Still, I found some chapters difficult, especially the last one about bargaining, Though, I have been too lazy to grab a pen and paper and work out the various games on my own. Not enough was done to differentiate between the different game types, or show how they really are similar, explain the language of the payoff Trusting that the author indeed knows that which he writes upon.

I stopped being super critical of all the little things after the first 20 Pages or so. Ultima nota per gli anglofobi: The supermarket’s price for corn flakes is decided by playing an economic game. My hope is to use Game Theory in the future to observe paradoxes of choice arise.


I am note sure, but I have not read other alternative. It took me back to reading Robert Wright’s Nonzero: May 07, Theodore McCombs rated it did not like it. Fellow of the Econometric Society and British Academy.
