From the Publisher"Shafer...and Vovk...explain how probability can be based on gametheory rather than measure theory, and how doing so allows it to beused in finance with out a lot of distracting an confusingassumptions about randomness." (Reference & Research BookNews, November 2001)
"....an interesting new mathematical and philosophical frameworkfor probability..." (Zentralblatt Math, Vol.985, No.10,2002)
"...a creative, entertaining and imaginative book..." (ShortBook Reviews, August 2002)
"The first half of this truly original book introduces a novelapproach to probability, founded on game theory rather than measuretheory. In an admirably clear, scholarly and engaging manner, ittraces its historical antecedents, expounds its advantages,develops its technicalities, and addresses its philosophicalimplications. The second half goes on to do the same for financialmodelling. This is a book that should utterly change the way wethink about its two topics."
