Review: Game Theory: A Non-Technical Introduction to the Analysis of Strategy

User Review  - TK Keanini - Goodreads

One of the best text on Game Theory. I think it is more of a reference book and its format is great for a dictionary of terms. The book is large and if it were smaller, it would be a great pocket field guide for game theory. Read full review
