The supermarket’s price for corn flakes is decided by playing an economic game. Unfortunately, this book wasn’t a good follow up at all.
This book is not for everyone and I will admit I will have to return to it to understand it more in the future but for maths I did find this accessible and interesting, Teogia just need to stop now as my brain is full.
Bjnmore knows what he is talking about. The book tires to explain the various concepts that go to make up Game Theory without overloading the reader with loads of mathematics – wherever possible illustrations are used giving real life examples to an idea or concept.

Trivia About Game Theory: It took me back to reading Robert Wright’s Nonzero: 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 In this very short introduction about pagesKen Binmore surveys Game Theory, talking about chance, time, conventions, reciprocity, information, auctions, evolutionary biology and finally bargaining.
Although, at times I felt like a short introduction like this could be easier to read. I also feel that the author devotes too much time to arguing against the straw man of ethical objections to game theory analyses – these could be dealt with as he does just once and not bothered with over and over again in different parts of the book. Not enough was done to differentiate between the different game types, or show how they really are similar, explain the language of the payoff diagrams, randomly explaining results with, or without math; and others issues.
Passion picks up at the journey’s end as the author talks about himself, and his work. Now, to be fair, I might have enjoyed other VSI books as I was familiar with terms used in them as opposed to this book; however, I doubt this was the case as the book does not state any prerequisite knowledge to grok its content.
I was very satisfied with the progression of the book, and loved getting a bit more info on such game theory notables as Nash, Von Neumann, etc. I was already somehow familiar with Game Theory, having followed tutorials and on online classes.

Oct 10, Greg rated it liked it Shelves: The best way to read the book is, in my opinion Look up some of the terms and see some other examples “Play” the games and try to find the equilbruem when germane This ruins the short and sweet aspect of it, but I imagine it would help! The tone is patronising, defensive, often adversarial. At the moment its right up there with Semiotics for me.

This has not been an easy book to read- but for me who is notorious for asking too many questions at the best of times it helps answer the question about why Game Theory is seen as being so important and how what can often be seen as a high concept actually does have relevance and even power in our society today.
I was con Blerg While I agree it is hard to be thorough in short introductory books, I think using terms without introducing them by examples or definition not for short introductory books is worst kind of mistake in books. For the non-beginner, the book sometimes skims over areas that the reader or perhaps, just this reader might want to wade deeper more maths into.
