Game Theory Evolving
Maximilian LeRoux rated it really liked it Dec 25, This book is perfect for upper undergraduate and gitis economics courses as well as a terrific introduction for ambitious do-it-yourselfers throughout the behavioral sciences. This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and system dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its competitors who typically focus on one of both.
Aside from specific topics, the text also seems to have been shortened overall, giving the impression that often explanation has been shortened in favor of additional problems. Jukka Aakula rated it really liked it Apr 30, And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places.

Bryce rated it liked it Dec 27, John rated it liked it Nov 29, In this problem-oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun-to-solve problems involving human and even animal behavior. Chapters typically start with a brief introduction to the topic at hand, after which increasingly complex problems highlight different aspects of the subject, often deriving key results in the process.
It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, although for many readers it should probably be supplemented with additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook.

Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction
We can only hervert about the underlying reasons the preface, unfortunately, does not detail differences between the editionsbut I find these choices surprising given the ever-increasing impact of behavioral approaches on economic thinking.
What has changed as compared to the first edition? In some cases, I find the choices made in this reordering questionable: Adam Mahoney rated it really liked it Jan 04, John rated it really liked it Sep 27, Michael Swearingen rated it really liked it Dec 06, Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways.
An enjoyable book, I really wish I could understand it more fully, but that will come.
Second, the book–recognizing that students learn by doing and that most game theory texts are weak on problems–is organized around problems, and introduces principles through practice. Some routine in formal reasoning and mathematics is certainly needed to solve most problems.
