Game Theory Reading List

Can You Learn Game Theory From Reading?

This reading list is fascinating and very fun for me to come up with. On the one hand, it is possible to learn and understand Game Theory strictly from reading because there are so many examples out there. On the other hand, I think we accomplished this with our luck system, transposing those games and concepts that you learn from the reading into real-life examples is a challenge for a lot of people.

Because of this, I tried to create a varied list that covers, strict textbook-like approaches mixed with readings that are not geared towards an individual who needs the best solution for how to speak on a job interview. This is because a lot of these concepts interweave with each other and their definitions and in my opinion I believe that these books which can truly beer add in any order after you start with an introduction (The first book,) you can start identifying the concepts as they’re being utilized.

Game Theory: an Introduction, EN Barron

There are quite a few textbooks that I could have chosen when it came to having any first accessible introduction, personally my first introduction with game theory was through Cambridge’s textbook, but it is incredibly thick and intimidating for a first-timer. I think the best thing you can do is start with this book and read any of the next four while reading it at the same time. That way, you have a lot more bite-size readings in the process, and you can reference to learn the more measured definition.

Art of Strategy: Avinash

If you have to choose one book out of this list and no other, this is the best for you in an everyday use. This is one of the best game theory books written of all time, it is incredibly easy to approach; it is immediately practical, find real value in a concise amount of time.

Art of War: Sun Tzu

This is classic. The Art of War is essentially the grandfather of Game Theory. The concepts are written about, of which this book is 2,500 years old, applied directly to war. And as a general textbook of strategy from one of the greatest wartime generals and strategists in the history of China. But ultimately, this isn’t something that is a breakdown of military flanking positions or how to keep morale up when you’re outnumbered.

This instead, is a powerful indicator of how you can enter Work your psychology with somebody else’s. The Art of War works just as well with 10,000 people what do with a one-on-one conversation.

Chess Fundamentals: Jose Capablanca

This book has probably the least to do directly with applicable Game Theory to your everyday life. But if you’ve ever played the game of chess at all, you understand it is a battle of wits, two people every player on the board, and depending on how seasoned do you are you might know a few old tricks and moves along the way.

Capablanca’s book covers everything you would need to know do not only learn how to play chess but how to pay that yourself in a position to read your opponent and also to withhold information. I frequently recommend reading this with the Art of War in tandem, and I always ask which do you think is more violent?

Games and Decisions: R Duncan.

Finally, I keep this one to treat it like the opposing bookend to whatever first textbook approach you have. This book does a great job of taking those concepts and turning them into a quantifiable principle. This book begins to Bridging the Gap between game Theory as psychological Concepts and turning it into a mathematical policy.
