- This is a problem-based book on game theory. There are at least three questions a game theory book might answer: What is game theory about? How is game theory applied? Why is game theory right? The book attempts to answer all three questions. Its many problems and examples are an integral part of its approach. Just as athletes take pleasure in training their bodies, there is much satisfaction to be found in training one's mind to think in a way that is simultaneously rational and creative. With all of its puzzles and paradoxes, game theory provides a magnificent mental gymnasium for this purpose.
