"This book is an interesting contribution to the growing number of books on Game Theory and its economic applications. Mathematical prerequisites are minimal and the level of technicality is low. What distinguishes this book from others at this level is the choice of applications: oligopoly theory, macroeconommics, trade theory, and environmental economics...it will be useful both as an introductory text book and as supplementary reading for intermediate courses in macroeconomics and game theory./Jurgen Eichberger Universitat des Saarlandes/ The Economic Journal September 1998."
"Provides an introduction to basic game theory concepts and illustrates how these have been applied to a diverse range of economic issues./journal of Economic Literature Volume 36, no.3, September 1998."
