Aside from specific gintks, the text also seems to have been shortened overall, giving the impression that often explanation has been shortened in favor of additional problems. Among the topics that have been sacrificed are behavioral game theory and learning in games with incomplete information at least as dedicated chapters; some of these topics do reappear briefly in other chapters.
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. The book did humanise the game theory topic and did make it comprehensible to gintls like me, you have evolvinv passing interest in the subject of game theory.
Nelson Amaya rated it really liked it Dec 15, Kevin Zollman rated it really liked it Dec 22, This book is perfect for upper undergraduate and graduate economics courses as well as a terrific introduction for ambitious do-it-yourselfers throughout the behavioral sciences.
Paperbackpages. Second, the content has been thoroughly reordered as compared to the first version, and nearly all chapters have been renamed. Temy Chonos rated it really liked it Mar 23, The style of writing is lucid and often humorous. Published June 11th by Princeton University Press first published Will Klutch rated it it was amazing Jun 12, Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. In the final quarter of the book, the emphasis shifts to topics characteristic of evolutionary game theory: In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems and answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation.
There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Jukka Aakula rated it really liked it Apr 30, In some places it seems that sections have not yet been fully adapted to their new place in the book; sometimes new concepts are wvolving before being introduced, while other concepts are introduced twice.
Solutions to many problems are provided at the end of the book. This is certainly not an approach to please everyone.
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. And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places.

Gabe Lopez rated it really liked it Nov 26, What has changed as evvolving to the first edition?
An enjoyable gibtis, I really wish I could understand it more fully, but that will come. This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and system dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its theeory who typically focus on one of both. Trivia About Game Theory Evolv A minor annoyance is that the text does not indicate which problems do have solutions included, leading to much unsuccessful browsing back and forth.
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. Second, rvolving 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.
