Product Description

Review

Game Theory by Fudenberg and Tirole provides a comprehensive and precise exposition of the theory and the main applied topics, plus challenging exercises conveying the key ideas from a wide literature. The treatments of dynamics and incomplete information unify developments of the 1980s. This book will be a standard text and reference.

(Robert Wilson, Professor, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University)

Both broad and deep, this book belongs on the shelf of every serious student of game theory.

(David Kreps, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University)

Game Theory is the book to read if you want to be published in Econometrica.

(Ken Binmore, Professor of Economics, University of Michigan and University College London)

Fudenberg and Tirole's text will have an immediate and important impact on the way game theory is taught at the graduate level. Not only does it cover most of the central topics in noncooperative game theory, it is as up-to-date and complete as a book in this area could hope to be.

(Charles Wilson, Professor of Economics, New York University)

If you are going to do Micro at more than an undergraduate level, you are going to have this book on your shelf. It is quite comprehensive, although the notation is not always what one might be used to. I do share some of the misgivings voiced in other reviews -- topics sometimes don't appear in the order one might expect and the flow often may not seem natural. Also, the format of the presentation is unlike a mathematics text in that defibnitions, etc. may not always appear in nice blocks, etc. and occassionaly I have found myself wishing for a bit more technical detail, for example on Bayesian Games. But at some stage, if you do enough game theory, you will find yourself looking at it and then buying it.

The book does a pretty good job of covering Bayesian issues, but one would think that a big book would be better organized and would cover more topics.
I found it difficult to master the issues of equilibrium refinement and of mechanism design using this book and had to turn to outside sources at the time. Many of the problems would be helped by more "mechanical" examples on how to solve them, since the tools needed to solve many of these problems are probably new to a lot of students. The Tirole IO book contains some solved problems...I wish this book did, too.
Overall, it is a fine book...more than adequate. But it could be better.

Format: Hardcover
This book is broad, but certainly not comprehensive; I'm passionate about game theory, but reading this book often feels like a poison pill. There is often a severe lack of intuition, and the presentation lacks flow; indeed, whereas Myerson or Osborne-Rubinstein make game theory seem to flow mathematically in a very continuous manner, Fudenberg-Tirole jump from idea to idea, very discontinuously. Any serious game theory student should buy the book for its references and some topics, but if you're looking to start with a book, look at Myerson instead.
