Description

Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It’s the art of anticipating your opponent’s 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 studies - from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history - the 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

not meant as an audio book, missing key info

the stories are there, but during the read thru, many times it refers to charts or maps that cannot be expressed or is omitted outright in this audio book.

Strategic Interaction: How to Do Well on Purpose

Excellent presentation of critical principles. Interesting because the principles are presented through stories. My only caveat would be that the authors occasionally slip into talking as if all strategic actors act in a way that comports 100% with traditional economic theory. However, as behavioral economics has demonstrated persuasively actual human beings depart from these assumptions at least some of the time.

Provides significant amount of game theory as applied.

Did not find it useful

Game theory book impractical and unrealistic.
Authors are academic and crated explained this framework to make decisions. Some obvious things explained in a very complex way almost impossible to understand without a visual guide.

Audiobook doesn’t include necessary PDFs of charts and graphics

This book may or may not be great, but I can’t tell because it constantly refers to charts and graphics that are obviously not narratable. The opening narration of the audiobook suggests that a pdf of these charts is available at the site the audiobook was downloaded from, but having now scoured Audible, Amazon and the book’s own website I can find no such thing. So not recommended unless they figure that out.

Completely misleading title

The book is mainly centered around game theory and should have been called the science of strategy. 1/3 of the book was the narrator reading algebraic formulas and referring to tables that a frequent commuter listener can see.

With the exception of a couple of interesting anecdotes, the book does not provide anything in the way of the art of strategy the way say the art of war does. The authors add nothing in terms of insights but instead use story to describe other's theories.

Disappointing

Business group I'm in chose this book, we all read it and were all disappointed, only one of the 4 we've done so far (we do 1/quarter) that we felt this way and it was unanimous.

Great book in its category

There aren't many good books on this subject available... that fact bumps the rating to 5 stars for me. Some of the math was very hard to follow with just listening. But there's a lot of value in the book even without that.

Not what I expected

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I thought this would offer more techniques for strategies one might not know. This offers more of the basic strategies you've heard of and the math behind it.

Would you recommend The Art of Strategy to your friends? Why or why not?

Only if you want to dig deep into basic strategies.

Hörbuch mit unsichtbaren Diagrammen

Was genau hätte man an The Art of Strategy noch verbessern können?

Der Sprecher verweist oft auf "das folgende Diagramm zeigt" oder "das Ergebnis sieht man hier" - ABER in einem Hörbuch ist nichts zu zeigen und nichts zu sehen. Unsinn!
