Game Theory by Fudenberg and Tirole provides a comprehensive and precise exposition of the theory and the main applied topics, plus challenging exercises conveying the key ideas from a wide literature. The treatments of dynamics and incomplete information unify developments of the 1980s. This book will be a standard text and reference.

Both broad and deep, this book belongs on the shelf of every serious student of game theory.
(David Kreps, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University)
Game Theory is the book to read if you want to be published in Econometrica.
(Ken Binmore, Professor of Economics, University of Michigan and University College London)
Fudenberg and Tirole's text will have an immediate and important impact on the way game theory is taught at the graduate level. Not only does it cover most of the central topics in noncooperative game theory, it is as up-to-date and complete as a book in this area could hope to be.
(Charles Wilson, Professor of Economics, New York University)
