Very often, concrete examples illustrating the maths behind the ideas could illuminate the mathematical notations to a non-mathematicians, and if the next edition could incorporate that, that will be most helpful to the non-mathmaticians.
The topic of Baysian Games was not covered, which was a bit of a disappointment, as it is one of the books recommended by the professors teaching the course on Game Theory in Coursera, and that subject, Baysian Games was covered in the course, so I was hoping that this book would expend on that topic, but it wasn't covered in this book.
