âI am hard pressed to think of another book that can match the combination of practical insights and reading enjoyment.ââSteven LevittGame theory means rigorous strategic thinking. Itâs the art of anticipating your opponentâs 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 studiesâfrom pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and historyâthe 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.
