"This book chronicles one of the outstanding success stories of the theory of games, a story in which the authors have played a major role: the theory and practice of matching markets....The authors are to be warmly congratulated for this fine piece of work, which is quite unique in the game-theoretic literature." From the Foreword by Robert Aumann
"An expertly guided tour through an unfamiliar and beautiful region of equilibrium theory would be quite enough incentive for most economic theorists to buy and read this book. But perhaps the greatest treat offred is Roth's discovery of a happy coincidence between theory and practical affairs." Journal of Economic Literature
