There is absolutely no need to read this book if you've read Thinking Strategically. I'm not certain why they exist as two separate books. Avinash K. Dixit , Barry Nalebuff. Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It's the art of anticipating your opponent's next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world.
Using a diverse array of rich case studies--from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history--the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Are the winners of reality-TV contests instinctive game theorists? Do big-time investors see things that most people miss? What do great poker players know that you don't?
Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery. Nalebuff applies game theory to business strategy and is the co-founder of one of America's fastest-growing companies, Honest Tea. Dixit , Barry Nalebuff W.

The Art of Strategy : A Game Theorist's Guide to Success in Business and Life
Have you ever had to dissect a complicated business scenario and were confused as to where to begin, or how to analyze the problem? Game theory is the science of predicting the outcome of a scenario or game by understanding the rewards and risks associate with each decision. Game theory can help anyone identify the best strategy or tactic given a goal or aspiration. This book is not only based on extensive research, but it includes real life examples and case studies to prove that game theory analysis works in different business settings. When game theory strategies are applied to everyday business situations, obstacles and challenges can be overcome and the end result can be a positive one. The book is filled with questions that will get the reader to think twice before they make their next decision, recipes to use game theory analysis in split-second situations, and case studies that demonstrate the power of using game theory.
