Summary

Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It’s the art of anticipating your opponent’s next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world. Using a diverse array of rich case studies - from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history - the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

not meant as an audio book, missing key info

the stories are there, but during the read thru, many times it refers to charts or maps that cannot be expressed or is omitted outright in this audio book.

Strategic Interaction: How to Do Well on Purpose

Excellent presentation of critical principles. Interesting because the principles are presented through stories. My only caveat would be that the authors occasionally slip into talking as if all strategic actors act in a way that comports 100% with traditional economic theory. However, as behavioral economics has demonstrated persuasively actual human beings depart from these assumptions at least some of the time.

Provides significant amount of game theory as applied.
