Maybe a bit technical 14 March 2013
By Ronald P. Ng - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not a math major, and I found many of the mathematical notations a bit daunting. It has many questions, but would appreciate if the author could provide answers at the back of the book.

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.

Concise but not for begginers 10 March 2013
By lventura - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Actually the title represents exactly what it is, a concise introduction. It's not necessarily for beginners. Certainly it would be better used by people that already know a little of Game Theory. It's not pretended to be a text book; it is more of a companion book with remainders than a textbook with exercises. More examples explained step to step would make more useful for people interested in learning on game theory.

Excellent short introduction to game theory 8 November 2012
By David McG - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This short (about 100 pages) book is an excellent introduction to game theory. Written for computer science students it is nonetheless accessible to anyone with a bit of mathematics in his/her background that includes elementary matrix and set theory and notation.

Great introduction to game theory 5 July 2015

Got the book to go along with the free Stanford University course on Game Theory and the corresponding Auction Theory course by the same authors. I plan on getting the first, but more extensive book Multi-Agent Systems: Algorithmic Game-theoretic and Logical Foundations.
