Product Synopsis

Game Theory is the study of co-operation and the underlying strategies that shape human behavior. In "Rock, Paper, Scissors", Len Fisher unearths the wide-ranging applications for this science, and the ways we can use its discoveries to find effective means to co-operate in daily life. Whether we want to understand where a shared supply of teaspoons disappears to, or why countries take themselves to the brink of nuclear war, Game Theory reveals the decision-making process. Len Fisher's writing brings this science of interaction to life with anecdotes and applications that are sure to spark the imagination and give you pause for thought. Dealing with collaboration, co-operation, completion and confrontation, "Rock, Paper, Scissors" is essential reading for anyone interest in what it takes to get people to work together.
