This is a classic in Theory of Games as part of the baggage any economist must have in his understanding about how the markets solve problems when there're market power to exert to improve profits. Duopoly an Oligopoly are solved as games. The complete isuue must cover Bayessian solutions and multi-step games.

Gibbons is one of the most complete texts currently used at Universities.

This is a nice resource for anyone interested in game theory. It goes through nice intuitive explanations of theory and application with a less rigor than other books on the subject.
Good, concise, nice reference without a lot of filler. Not necessarily a good place for beginners.
Good book on game theory. Clear examples and text.
