Abstract

Book Reviews formalizing the concepts intuitively discussed in Dixit and Nalebuff [1991, 2008] without getting into the technical details of formal game theory. Finally, the group of law students could benefit from using this book as a supplement to Baird et al. [1994], which addresses strategic issues in legal settings at a more intuitive level. On the whole, this book successfully targets the three groups of students men- tioned above. It succeeds in making accessible what is often considered excessively technical material by undergraduate students. References Baird, D.G., Gertner R.H. and R.C. Picker. 1994.
