Whether your primary interest is to improve your card game or put together a political coalition, here you will be enjoyably instructed in an approach to strategy that has caught the imagination of a generation of readers. John McDonald looks at the elusive thread of opposition and conflict that runs through human interrelationships, from the striking of a bargain to the clash of war. He discusses poker; game theory, as it applies to games but mainly to business; the strategies of buyers and sellers; and finally military and other applications.

Remarkably fine.--John Kenneth Galbraith
