Almost every aspect of life presents us with decision problems, ranging from the simple question of whether to have pizza or ice cream, or where to aim a penalty kick, to more complex decisions like how a company should compete with others and how governments should negotiate treaties. Game theory is a technique that can be used to analyse strategic problems in diverse settings; its application is not limited to a single discipline such as economics or business studies. A Guide to Game Theory reflects this interdisciplinary potential to provide an introductory overview of the subject. Put off by a fear of maths? No need to be, as this book explains many of the important concepts and techniques without using mathematical language or methods. This will enable those who are alienated by maths to work with and understand many game theoretic techniques.
