It can be used at an advanced undergraduate course or a graduate course. ... I found the book very well written and appropriate for a game theory course focused on business and economics students and applications. Some of the problems are very challenging but most of them are at the appropriate level and the reader will have some fun and learn from them. This is a book that I recommend if you are interested in game theory ... . (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, June, 2016) This book is therefore a very successful work on the task of providing the largest number of readers, independently of the initial levels of knowledge, an introduction to game theory simultaneously accessible and rigorous, with a wide exemplification of applications, allowing them to achieve efficiently an advanced level of knowledge in the field. Indispensable for teachers and both undergraduate and graduate students in game theory. Also for business and economics professionals, and everybody curious on these matters. (Manuel Alberto M.
