In "Strategy", Joel Watson has applied his strengths as both a leading researcher and an outstanding teacher and communicator to produce this winning textbook. Aimed towards advanced students in game theory, "Strategy" is rigorous and sophisticated in its approach. However the author presents material according to a minimalist philosophy, working with the simplest possible models and only developing theory to the extent that it can be useful for examples and applications. The result is a book that emphasises ideas over technical elaboration, while maintaining a strict approach to theory. Although an advanced, technical textbook, Professor Watson's knack for capturing the interest of students and his inviting writing style means that "Strategy" is a joy to read.
