Overview

Critical Acclaim forPrisoner's Dilemma"e;The real originality of PRISONER'S DILEMMA lies in its colorful synthesis of logical material and historical and biographical narration [which] takes us in parallel lines through cold war history, strategic games of the nuclear age and the life of von Neumann . . . Lively, open and multifaceted."e;New York Times Book Review"e;Poundstone deftly intertwines the development of game theory with the biography of its founder, who was considered by many the most intelligent person alive. Poundstone does a superb job of relating the insights of game theory to real-world conflicts."e;Washington Times"e;An absolute, mind-blowing page turner . . . Poundstone writes with real verve and he takes very technical concepts and makes them perfectly clear and insightful. PRISONER'S DILEMMA is the latest title from one of the best sciece/contemporary thought writers we have in the English language."e;The Coast Book Review"e;Explains game theory lucidly, reveals some hair-raising post-war governmental skullduggery, and brings to life one of history's foremost mathematicians."e;Los Angeles Times"e;Very readable . . . Fascinating, thought-provoking, and easily accessible to the layperson."e;Library Journal
