Game Theory: A Nontechnical Introduction to the Analysis of Strategy
by Roger McCain
Publisher: Drexel University 2010
Number of pages: 413
Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, Strategy and Conflict: A Non-Technical Introduction to Game Theory teaches by example. While Game Theoretic principles are the same across the board, learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to.

Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. This text demonstrates the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata.

When this book was originally published in 1954, game theory was an esoteric and mysterious subject. Its popularity today can be traced at least in part to this book, which popularized the subject for amateurs and professionals throughout the world.

This essay gives a self-contained introduction to quantum game theory, and is primarily oriented to economists with little or no acquaintance with quantum mechanics. It assumes little more than a basic knowledge of vector algebra.
