    One thought on “Game Theory”

    1. This has been the standard game theory textbook for graduate students in economics for a very long time. However it is not as clear and precise as either Game Theory. Analysis of conflict or A course in Game Theory. For self study, it may be better to start with something like Ken Binmore's Fun and Games: A Text on Game Theory or Osborne's An Introduction to Game Theory, International Edition

    2. Not bad. It goes through the basics of Game theory with each chapter adding onto the prior. It goes through tons of examples. It is quite applicable to finance related topics, not sure for those that are not into that whether it would be as helpful. Then again, I think the most aggressive use of this type of mathematics would be finance at this point in time.I would recommend it as a text book. There is also an e-book version, but I suspect that it is better to have the hard copy for something o [...]

    3. A friend told me about this book and loaned it to me for a few weeks. I unfortunately didn't have much free time to look at it, but Fudenberg and Tirole's book covered an array of game theoretical topics and in a more mathematical approach than Dixit's Games of Strategy. I really want to get my hands on this book to keep.
