Editorial Reviews

Fortune
Dixit and Nalebuff set out sure-fire rules for thinking about strategy.— David Henderson
Washington Post
A fascinating new book that can be read with real pleasure. . . . The problem is, of course that if Dixit and Nalebuff can improve your strategic IQ, they can improve your competitor's as well—and the Japanese rights were sold months ago.— David Warsh
Buron G. Malkiel
“A gem of a book. It makes some important insights on the frontiers of economics and game theory easily accessible, tremendously enjoyable, and practically useful.”
David Henderson - Fortune
“Dixit and Nalebuff set out sure-fire rules for thinking about strategy.”
David Warsh - Washington Post
“A fascinating new book that can be read with real pleasure.... The problem is, of course, that if Dixit and Nalebuff can improve your strategic IQ, they can improve your competitor's as well.”
Elizabeth Bailey
“Machiavelli is brought up-to-date in this book by Dixit and Nalebuff. They make strategic tools humorous, human, and effective.”
Paul A. Volcker
“I confess that I have never thought of monetary policy or government as a game, but Professors Dixit and Nalebuff succeed brilliantly in clarifying questions we all face in decision-making, elevated or mundane.”
Bob Woolf

Thinking Strategically gives you the vital components for good and effective negotiating.

Paul Samuelson
“To be literate in the modern age, you need to have a general understanding of game theory. Dixit and Nalebuff provide the skeleton key. You'll benefit from Thinking Strategically and enjoy the book.”
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Most books on game theory either focus on specialized applications (cardplaying, business, nuclear war) or bore with mathematics and jargon. Free of formulas and argot, this refreshing exception distills the principles, concepts, tools and techniques--brinkmanship, bargaining, unconditional moves, vicious circles, etc.--with an astonishing diversity of illustrative examples drawn from political campaigns, baseball, neighborhood dynamics of segregation, the military draft, speed limits, childrearing and so forth. In helping strategists anticipate rivals' responses and win the game, economics professors Dixit and Nalebuff (who teach game theory at Princeton and Yale, respectively) provide managers, negotiators, athletes, parents and other game-players with a formidable weapon. Drawings. BOMC, Fortune Book Club and QPB selections. (Feb.)
