Nobody has enough time to search the exercise with solution on website. It should be provided inside the book, otherwise no value to buy a book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Mediocre 2 April 2015
By Stephen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Don't use if you want a mathematical treatment of game theory. Osborne assumes almost no knowledge of math. His explanations are pretty verbose and convoluted. Maybe it would be more useful for undergrads that don't know much math, though I can't imagine grad students finding this text very useful.
There is a partial solution manual available online, but it contains the solutions to mostly the easier questions, and the more difficult exercises do not have solutions. I'd imagine this would be difficult to use for self-study.
4.0 out of 5 stars I am overall satisfied with the order 14 October 2016

The book came when expected and was in decent condition. The description was not clear on which version this was (I assumed it was the European/North American version, but it was the South-East Asian version). However, I am overall satisfied with the order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! A true introduction 11 March 2009
By Trevor Burnham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book manages to teach game theory in depth while avoiding any mathematics beyond rudimentary calculus and set theory. It was used as the basis for an undergraduate course that I took, and none of the texts I've used as a graduate student can compare in terms of clarity. This is a book that takes its time, letting ideas sink in rather than abandoning students who don't grasp new concepts right away. The problems given are interesting, and many have clearly-written solutions available online.

If you are looking for a more advanced text, then Ken Binmore's recent Playing for Real stands out above the crowd.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Useful Book, However... 25 February 2010
By Game Theory Yeoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a required coursebook for a class on game theory. At first, I hated this book. There are no solutions to the exercises contained within the book, as another reviewer has noted. If you want to self-teach, you may struggle. However, after performing due diligence, I found that there exists online a pdf of solutions to most exercises within the book, available for free.

I can not speak for whether this book is best in comparison to others, because I have not read others, nor would I have the in-depth knowledge to compare, as this is not my field.

What I can tell you is that I have learned a lot from this book, but only once I found the self-published solutions manual from the author, available here:

If you buy this book, that's pretty necessary if you plan to go forward alone.
