Levitt, coauthor of Freakonomics “When you’ve finished this brilliant book, you will have learned an entirely new and very artful approach to making decisions. The anecdotes and examples are amazing.” ??”Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind “For years I’ve been asked what to read in order to learn, or to learn about, game theory. I eventually chose Thinking Strategically by Dixit and Nalebuff. Now I can recommend with even more enthusiasm their wonderfully ingenious new presentation. And if you already know game theory, just enjoy it.” ??”Thomas C. Schelling, winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics Your bible for developing winning strategies in business and in the game of life.
