Preview — Game Theory by Ken Binmore. Drivers maneuvering in heavy traffic are playing a driving game. Bargain hunters bidding on eBay are playing an auctioning game. The supermarket’s price for corn flakes is decided by playing an economic game. This Very Short Introduction offers a succinct tour of the fascinating world of game theory, a ground-breaking field that analyzes how to play g Games are everywhere: This Very Short Introduction offers a succinct tour of the fascinating world of game theory, a ground-breaking field that analyzes how to play games in a rational way.
Ken Binmore, a renowned game theorist, explains the theory in a way that is both entertaining and non-mathematical yet also deeply insightful, revealing how game theory can shed light on everything from social gatherings, to ethical decision-making, to successful card-playing strategies, to calculating the sex ratio among bees. With mini-biographies of many fascinating, and occasionally eccentric, founders of the subject–including John Nash, subject of the movie A Beautiful Mind –this book offers a concise overview of a cutting-edge field that has seen spectacular successes in evolutionary biology and economics, and is beginning to revolutionize other disciplines from psychology to political science.
Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative–yet always balanced and complete–discussions of the central issues in a given topic. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how it has developed and influenced society.
Whatever the area of study, whatever the topic that fascinates the reader, the series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable. Paperbackpages.

At less than pages Binmore is abl ” At less than pages Binmore is able to break down Game Theory into chapters on chance, time, conventions, reciprocity, information, auctions, evolutionary biology, bargaining and coalitions, puzzles and paradoxes. For the beginner, the problem with this book will be how quickly the book expects the reader to pick up on some of the accepted standards of game theory thinking and explanations boxes, game trees, subgames, etc.
For the non-beginner, the book sometimes skims over areas that the reader or perhaps, just this reader might want to wade deeper more maths into. This is the inherent tension in all the VSI. It is the dance, the game of the series. You have to be able to present your information in a package designed to be broad in scope, but small in application. Binmore does a good job, however. I was very satisfied with the progression of the book, and loved getting a bit more info on such game theory notables as Nash, Von Neumann, etc.
I was also excited by the whole chapter devoted to game theory and evolutionary biology. It took me back to reading Robert Wright’s Nonzero: This book also was good in giving me a couple more GT books to read in the future on cooperation. View all 4 comments. Jun 06, Andrew rated it really liked it. I will admit my head hurts after this book and no its not a bad thing.
I will start though by saying that to me mathematics is about numbers and not concepts – my line of work and experience makes me see numbers not symbols or concepts – so I will admit that I have had to work at this book. But why read something that is hard work – well for me the concept is fascinating – game theory has been quoted, mis-interpreted and yes even abused so many times it was about time to see what it was all abou I will admit my head hurts after this book and no its not a bad thing.
La teoria de juegos / Game Theory : Una breve introduccion / A Very Short Introduction
But why read something that is hard work – well for me the concept is fascinating – game theory has been quoted, mis-interpreted and yes teotia abused so many times it was about time to see what it was all about – and the “Very short introduction” book is a great way of achieving that without reducing me to a gibbering wreck.
The book tires to explain the various concepts that go to make up Game Theory without overloading the reader with loads of mathematics – wherever possible illustrations are binmorw giving real life examples to an idea or concept. The book also gives a little bit of history of where the various theories came from both good and bad and shows a little illumination of where the theories have been used.
This has not been an easy book to read- but for me who is notorious for asking too many questions at the best of times it helps answer the question about why Game Theory is seen as being so important and how what can often be seen as a high concept actually does have relevance and even power in our society today.

This book is not for everyone and I will admit I will jurgos to return to it to understand it more in the future but for maths I did find this accessible and interesting, I just need to stop now as my brain is full. Oct 15, Dan Cohen rated it it was ok Shelves: I was disappointed by this introduction.
The author writes with considerable style and covers some aspects well, but I think that the core principles of game theory are not explained at all well and the examples and diagrams are explained particularly poorly.
Not surprisingly, the book is juuegos when covering the author’s speciality – auctions.
I also feel that the author devotes too much time to arguing against the straw man of ethical objections to game theory analyses – these could be dealt wit I was disappointed by this introduction.
I also feel that the author devotes too much time to arguing against the straw man of ethical objections to game theory analyses – these could be dealt with as he does just once and not bothered with over and over again in different parts of the book.
May 26, Mohammad Javad added it. Ken Binmore is the right person for introducing Game Theory. He knows what he is talking about. Although, at times I felt like a short introduction like this could be easier to read.
Some pages, I really needed to stop a few mins and read it a few times. Oct 15, Scott Stratford rated it did not like it. Pretentious garbage – this is what happens when a mathematician tries to write a jusgos Only read if you are autistic and think that your entire life binmoge comes down to a game of heads or tails. Nov 15, Maurizio Codogno rated it really liked it Shelves: Come cambiano le cose nel tempo!
Ultima nota per gli anglofobi: May 27, Venkatesh-Prasad rated it it was ok. However, it was disappointing I gave up half way because it kept dropping terms without introduction e. While I agree it is hard to be thorough in short introductory books, I think using terms without introducing them by examples or definition not for short introductory books is worst kind of mistake in books.
Now, to be fair, I might have bonmore other VSI books as I binmpre familiar with terms used in them as opposed to this book; however, I doubt this was the case as the book does not state any prerequisite knowledge to grok its content.
May 06, Jay Little rated it really liked it. While short, it’s also to the point and lives up to it’s title. It is a very short introduction to game theory, but it hits the important notes and gives just enough information to whet the whistle and prepare the reader for more complex, detailed books discussing game theory Think of it not so much as a primer or cliff notes version of Game Theory, but more of a sampler appetizer platter — you get to try a little bit of everything before deciding if y While short, it’s also to the point and lives up to it’s title.
Think of it not so much as a primer or cliff notes version of Game Theory, but binnore of a sampler appetizer platter — you get to try a little bit of everything before deciding if you want to commit to a larger portion. May 07, Theodore McCombs rated it did not like it. Obscure and underwritten for beginners, uninteresting for non-beginners.
Some of the first figure illustrations were wrong, abolishing any reader trust and confusing the heck out of me for a while.
Stopped after four chapters. If you’re looking for a great and accessible introduction to game theory, keep looking. Oct 24, Tforia rated it it was ok.
So, you write a book that doesn’t exactly explain a concept, but instead confirms a concept for those who already understand the concept. Nov 07, Daniel Wright rated it it was ok Shelves: This book certainly does more-or-less what it says on the can: On the other hand there is much criticism that could be made of it.
The tone is patronising, defensive, often adversarial. The mathematics this is not the author’s fault is rather thin on the ground, which sometimes makes it difficult to follow.
Jan 13, Dane rated it it was ok Kn Even though I struggled to turn each page, I’m glad I got an introduction to game theory So it lives up to its name.
I had a question about every three sentences. It read like a textbook, but occationally, Binmore would drop some strange word or phrase, and he seemed to be breaking the tone I was con Blerg I was consistantly awkward and klunky and often left large holes in logic and jumps in reasoning. I felt like Binmore dde showing off his big telecom auction deal.
He flaunted it several times. He was quite sour on moral philosophy, calling out Kant at least twice. I stopped being super critical of all the little things after the first 20 Pages or so. My biggest impediment to comprehending game theory arises out of the compression of information. The whole idea of game theory is to show potential outcomes based on a simplified choice architecture.
I see the value here.
