About this book
An accessible introduction to game theory, applying it not just to economics but also to political science, psychology, philosophy and biology. With mini-biographies of the founders of the subject.
Games are played everywhere: from economics and online auctions to social interactions, and game theory is about how to play such games in a rational way, and how to maximize their outcomes. This VSI reveals, without mathematical equations, the insights the theory can bring to everything from how to play poker optimally to the sex ratio among bees.
