    Hard work needed to understand for non-specialist but very readable.In kindle version the diagrams are very small and cannot be enlarged.

  • By Bernd Kotz on 21 December 2005

    This book is on strategic thinking. This is what you normally understand as game theory today. Game theory have become a mayor scientific discipline. After two Nobel prices it is a normal standard in economics. Dixit and Nalebuff describe the basics in game theory on a low level. They do not need to use mathematical equations to explain the context. The examples in this book are taken from politics, business and sports. There common model is the prison dilemma case. From this starting point they explain the various forms of co-operative behaviour to solve the games in life. The final result is to find a co-operative outcome with strategic moves. There are a lot of case studies in this book. It makes it easier to follow there ideas.They show how deterrence was a good instrument in the cold war. They explain how a thread in business is taken on and when the thread is credible it is a good strategy to deter a potential competitor.It is a book for everyone who is interested in strategic thinking. For the manager it is a good book for bargaining situations.I read the book with pleasure because it makes business very simple and it is a joy to read.

    After deciding what to read next on my adventures, I was recommended to read Thinking Strategically. Now, after reading (I still haven't finished yet about 1/2 way through), this book has already helped me. It has saved money, and helped my game theory knowledge which was non-existent before reading. This book, once you get started is hard to put down, and anything mentioned applies wherever you go, and whatever you do! (don't want to ruin it too much) both authors of this book, also have their own personal experiences in this book, as well as well known examples. A Must read, should you want to learn more about game theory, and outwit everyone else!

  • By Ellen Dear on 11 July 2012

    Quite a complex book, so not light reading, but very interesting. I look forward to using some of the methods, and see what the impact is. Definately a book for people who want to seriously learn about startegic thinking. If you put the book down, you'll have to re-read some to understand/follow the ideas, or is that just me?

    Interesting book with a different perspective on Strategy. A bit repetitive but nonetheless a very interesting read. May help graduate (or undergraduate) students in gaining some insights and intuitions about game theory, this however without being a substitute for more "technical" books.
