About the Author:

Avinash Dixit is Emeritus John J.F. Sherrerd University Professor of Economics at Princeton University, where he offered his popular freshman course in game theory. He is among the world’s leading economists, having made fundamental contributions in several major fields as well as in game theory. He is the author of many books, including Dixit/Nalebuff: Thinking Strategically (Norton, 1991), Dixit/Pindyck: Investment Under Uncertainty (Princeton University Press, 1994), and Dixit/Nalebuff: The Art of Strategy (Norton, 2009).

Barry J. Nalebuff is the Milton Steinbach Professor at the Yale School of Management. Nalebuff applies game theory to business strategy and is the co-founder of one of America's fastest-growing companies, Honest Tea.

Review:

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

Machiavelli is brought up-to-date in this book by Dixit and Nalebuff. They make strategic tools humorous, human, and effective. --Elizabeth Bailey, former dean, Graduate School of Industrial Administration, Carnegie Mellon University

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. --Paul A. Volcker

Thinking Strategically gives you the vital components for good and effective negotiating. --Bob Woolf, author of Friendly Persuasion

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. --Paul Samuelson
