3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a bit technical 14 March 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short introduction to game theory 8 November 2012
By David McG - Published on Amazon.com
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Concise but not for begginers 10 March 2013
By lventura - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, Short and Sharp 8 December 2012
By Victor M S Delgado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This incredible booklet is very fine piece of work for those who want to learn Game Theory in more direct way without setting aside the necessary rigor. The authors get directly to the point and put the most important definitions and concepts in a very clearly way. I have successfully applied this book to my undergrad students (some mathematical background are needed, but with correct directions most of them could get the grip). To graduate students this booklet is not sufficient, this attains only to the essentials, there are a lot of more extensive books on the market, and this book could be a good complement to these books. Negative points: I missed some exercises to help the reader to get the concepts fixed; the only exercises that are present go along with the text on "to-check" questions proposed to the reader. Some of they are important and could be at the end of each chapter. Also, the book page: [...] still needs more work and increase of contents. Summing all up, this book is short and sharp and sufficiently rigorous. Its reading is very thoughtful and pleasantly. I like it and recommend.
