I liked this book a very great deal because it is successful in bringing together the mathematical fields of game theory and the psychological aspects of interdependent decision making. I thoroughly recommend this book. - British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology

HASH(0x9cdcf7b0) out of 5 stars A great eye opener March 21 2009
By George T. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had a lot of fun reading this book. It is a tremendously balanced approach to game theory - not claiming that game theory is the solution, but rather a generalized approach that itself has flaws. It was a great overview of the history of game theory, its practical applications and limitations, and its proper applications. While this book does dive into the logic (sometimes deeply) it is still approachable for the non math inclined. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in problem solving and theory.

Before buying it, I read all but 2 or 3 chapters for class, and decided that I needed to own the book!!!
