About 6 weeks ago during a trip to Ottawa David Brock urged me (for a second time!) to pick up a copy of Robert Axelrod’s “The Evolution of Cooperation.” As the title suggests it is a book about the conditions under which cooperation might emerge. While I’m willing to concede that this book may not be for everyone’s cup of tea, it is still a fine cup I belive many would enjoy. Indeed, given how frustrating and empty game theory felt while I was in grad school I wish I’d had this book at my desk.
I’ve written a review of the book you can find here. In short, I’m glad I moved it to the top of the batting order – it was completely worth it. Thanks D-Rock.
