This book is written in a style that falls somewhere between doctoral dissertation and plain-talk layman's introduction. Those of us who find the subject fascinating will appreciate the book as straightforward, comprehensive and simple to read; if you're not fundamentally interested in social dilemmas, you will probably find it very dry and slightly dull (there isn't a lot of personality here). Either way, it will tell you nearly everything you'd need to know about social dilemmas.
Every theory that's introduced is followed by a detailed description of the computer models or experiments that prove or raise questions about that theory. The good news there is that you can easily skip over that information if it's too complicated or not relevant for you. It also means that you know exactly where the theories came from and how much evidence supports them.
The book gets a little redundant in places, which adds a little to the boredom factor if you're reading it cover-to-cover, but it also means that you don't have to read the entire book to understand any given chapter.
They do link social dilemmas to real-world problems frequently, but the whole text would read better and be more interesting (in my opinion) if they'd include significantly more examples about how people have actually dealt with and/or solved real-life social dilemmas in a way that did not tie back to graduate research.
