Fascinating, accessible introduction to enormously important intellectual system with numerous applications to social, economic, political problems. Newly revised edition offers overview of game theory, then lucid coverage of the two-person zero-sum game with equilibrium points; the general, two-person zero-sum game; utility theory; other topics. Problems at start of each chapter.… (més)

    Game Theory: A Very Short Introduction de Ken Binmore (waltzmn)
    waltzmn: Game theory is a subject with a strong mathematical underpinning, but the basic idea of strategies and picking an optimal result requires very little math. It just requires a clear explanation. Which both these books provide, but they give different examples and have different emphases. Probably Binmore's book is better for the first-timer, but both are highly recommended as overviews; they complement each other.… (més)

    Thinking Strategically: The Competitive Edge in Business, Politics, and Everyday Life de Avinash K. Dixit (pammab)
    pammab: Thinking Strategically is another non-technical (very limited math) introduction to game theory. Judging from ratings it may be better written and more accessible than the Davis Game Theory book, but it's unlikely to come up in searches unless you know what you are looking for.… (més)

A non-technical introduction? There are not too many formulas so in that sense it is non-technical. But to really engage with the material here requires some serious thinking. Very little here is anything close to trivial.

Introduction... well, it builds the material up from the ground. Anyone can read this... uh, well. It's really something of a typical math book. Yeah, sure, it starts from ground zero. But seriously if you are not accustomed to some pretty rigorous thinking, I suspect this book will quickly leave you in the dust!

I would call it more like a whirlwind tour. There are lots of good examples to chew on. It doesn't spend a whole lot of time on any one piece of the puzzle. You get a good taste and then off you go to the next dish.

This is a great book for getting a feel for what game theory is all about. I must admit, I didn't slog through all the details. Too much to digest! So there is a lot more here than what I absorbed! ( )

The title of this book perhaps promises a little more than it can deliver. And that's a good thing.

The very name "game theory" is perhaps a little confusing, because what mathematicians call "games" are simply situations in which each of two (or more) people involved has a precisely defined set of options, and there are certain rewards associated with combinations of options. Often the "games" are as exciting as mud. But they teach us about strategies.

The mathematics of game theory is generally not too complex (no higher-order calculus involved!), but it can be laborious. This book does an excellent job of sparing the reader that. No proofs; most of the principles are presented as examples or simply handwaved away. This sounds like it would make for a non-rigorous book. Surprisingly, it is not so. While the volume won't make you a game theorist, it will give you a genuine idea of how the field works. And, with it, a good idea of how to respond to a lot of real-life situations. Of the many books in the field I've read, this is genuinely one of the best. ( )

And by non-technical, the author means no math. I don't know what there is to game theory if you strip the math away, but there you go. ( )
