Aside from specific topics, the text also seems to have been shortened overall, giving the impression that often explanation has been shortened in favor of additional problems.
Kaisar Khatak rated it it was amazing Mar 31, yheory Second, the book–recognizing that students learn by doing and that most game theory texts are weak on problems–is organized around problems, and introduces principles through practice.
In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems evolbing answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation. Return to Book Page.
Zander Catta rated it really liked it Aug 17, Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory. These basics are elaborated in chapterswhich discuss eliminating dominated strategies and pure- and mixed-strategy Nash equilibria.

Daniel rated it it was amazing Jul 16, Eric Allen rated it it was amazing Apr 20, The study of strategic action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings. Temy Chonos rated it really liked it Mar 23, The book as a whole however still makes a somewhat unpolished impression, and I am not convinced of its improvement over the first edition.
It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, although for many readers it should probably be supplemented with additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook. The book did humanise the game theory topic and did make it comprehensible to non-mathematicians like me, you have a passing interest in the subject of game theory.
