Gladiators, Pirates and Games of Trust by Haim Shapira
"Highly entertaining introduction to game theory. Bibliography very updated. Bonus last chapter wherein the author synthesizes his "game" wisdom. "
Gladiators, Pirates and Games of Trust by Haim Shapira
"Some very engaging ideas presented through examples and stories. I enjoyed much of this, but didn't like being spoken to in a slightly patronising way "intelligent readers will no doubt have..." or "I have never heard a number speak, have you?". "

“Between the natural way and the path of grace there is a deep abyss. It is in that gap that we live our lives as a giant struggle between good and evil, Satan and God, despair and love. Whenever despair wins, it is the natural way. Whenever love wins, it is a moment of grace. When love is victorious and defeats despair completely, you've reached the path of grace.”
Haim Shapira, על הדברים החשובים באמת

“We, however, have all kinds of different ideas about what happiness is. Some must go bungee jumping to experience a rush of joy, while others find bliss staying home. Some are happy in a concert hall, listening to classical music, while children on a playground could be music to the ears of others. Some people experience elation when they solve a complicated equation, while for others a cancelled math class is a happy childhood memory.”
Haim Shapira, על הדברים החשובים באמת

“Ordinary people who live their lives peacefully, whose days gently resemble each other, may happen one day to stop and wonder why and what for do they do the things they do and have been doing for so many years?”
