In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems and answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation. Kaisar Khatak rated it it was amazing Mar 31, Published June 11th by Princeton University Press first published It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, although for many readers it should probably be supplemented ggintis additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook.

Eric Allen rated it it was amazing Apr 20, A minor annoyance is that the text does not indicate which problems do have solutions included, leading to much unsuccessful browsing back and forth.


Thanks for telling us about the problem.

While this may indeed ebolving a good way for newcomers to familiarize themselves with game-theoretical analysis, it makes the book less useful as a reference.

Maximilian LeRoux rated it really liked it Dec 25, Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory. The problems cover a broad range of important applications in economics, other social sciences, and the life sciences.


thoery We can only guess about the underlying reasons the preface, unfortunately, does not detail differences between the editionsbut I find these choices surprising given the ever-increasing impact of behavioral approaches on economic thinking. Some of these are rather sketchy, which can be frustrating to readers studying independently.

Game Theory Evolving

Refresh and try again. Chapter two, especially, which lays out the mathematical foundations of the rational actor model, is in my opinion far too formal and abstract for its position in the book.

This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and system dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its competitors who typically focus on one of both. Second, the book–recognizing that students learn by theoty and that most game theory texts are weak on problems–is organized around problems, and introduces principles through practice.

In this regard, Gintis and his publisher missed an opportunity to turn Game Theory Evolving into a truly great textbook.
