Game Theory: A Nontechnical Introduction to the Analysis of Strategy
by Roger McCain
Publisher: Drexel University 2010
Number of pages: 413
Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, Strategy and Conflict: A Non-Technical Introduction to Game Theory teaches by example. While Game Theoretic principles are the same across the board, learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to.
