To accompany my video lectures on gametheory101.com, I have created a textbook for basic strategic and extensive form games. You can purchase it here for $4.99 (or ~$12.59 for a hard copy, depending on how much Amazon chooses to charge for it today). You download a free sample lesson here. (The images don’t render exactly right on the PDF, but this isn’t a problem with the published version.)
I also have books on The Rationality of War and Bargaining.
I havenot got a Kindle. Is it possible to buy this book in another format. I have no intention of buying Kindle
The textbook is only available via the Kindle format. However, you can read the book without actually owning a Kindle device. Amazon has free apps for just about every kind of device. Go to http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=dig_arl_box?ie=UTF8&docId=1000493771 for more information.
You can also read ebooks from Amazon by going to https://read.amazon.com/ which is Amazon’s cloud reader.
Hope that helps.
Very nice work. Thank you so much for your efforts. I bought the $3.99 ($1 price increase) version. Still a bargain. What is nice is that once I bought it, Amazon has an app that let’s me download it again (for free) to my iPod Touch. (Or maybe I m reading it from the Cloud — hard to tell. Still convenient.) Perfect level for short seminar that I may give soon to retired folks as a supplement.
Oops! I moved the price up a dollar when I added the third chapter. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. And I’m glad you enjoyed the book.
I appreciate your devotion.
This is excellent material. I am taking a Coursera course but it is all video, and I need to have something in writing so this is a great accompaniment. Thanks!
I watched your videos with close attention and have a question and would be really grateful if you helped me out.
Can a person that breaks the independence axiom still be considered as a rational individual?
Yes. Rationality is just completeness + transitivity. You need those + independence + continuity for expected utilities, though.
