Read full description of the books Prisoner's Dilemma:Critical Acclaim for
"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."
—New York Times Book Review
"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."
"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."
—The Coast Book Review
"Explains game theory lucidly, reveals some hair-raising post-war governmental skullduggery, and brings to life one of history's foremost mathematicians."
—Los Angeles Times
"Very readable . . . Fascinating, thought-provoking, and easily accessible to the layperson."
