This book offers a rigorous, concise, and nontechnical introduction to some of the fundamental insights of rational choice theory.

It draws on formal theories of microeconomics, decision making, games, and social choice, and on ideas developed in philosophy, psychology, and sociology. Itzhak Gilboa argues that economic theory has provided a set of powerful models and broad insights that have changed the way we think about everyday life.
