One more thing: At the end of the book, the author speaks of the tools that the book gives you, classifying them in an "introductory level." But, be cautious, introductory doesn't mean easy. You have to read and re-read many times some topics in order to understand them. The best part, in this case, it is that at last you get a comprehensive background for recognizing the difference between --to say it in some way-- the game and the theory.
Good work. Highly recommended.
However, book's presentation is lacking in my opinion (a common flaw with independent publishers). Game matrices in the first part of the book are somewhat bloated and sometimes are repeated almost at every single step of a game, confusing the flow of the explanation. Equations are also bloated and written with many redundant parenthesized expressions, which makes for some hard time trying to absorb them in your head quickly. They could have been much leaner. Also, using the greek "sigma" (usually standard deviation) for probabilities seems counter-intuitive. Very very small margins around text. No index.
I could go on ranting about presentation details like this, but I'll stop here because book's content is worth the purchase and I don't want you clicking away and not getting it.
In a few words, the book has a great potential, but needs much improvement in presentation.
Needless to say I highly recommend this book to anyone interest in learning Game Theory. The low price of the book and the high quality of information within it provides a payoff that makes the decision to buy a no-brainer :-)
