PDF's to accompany the audio.
Probably not, I would rather read it.
A bit robotic.
It's technically a sound book, but not for audio, unless there are accompanying PDF documents. Narration could probably also have been better.
Not a good book to listen to because it references several charts and performs many logical proofs.
this book needs a PDF with charts to make the analysis easier to follow
This book has good content. It touches on a number of mathematical theories and illustrates their application with examples. This is essentially the content of the book and helps you to organize your thoughts objectively when assessing scenarios.
I do not recommend it as an audiobook, however. There are references made to graphical examples aligned with explanations that I'd guess are available on printed or soft version (non audio) version of the book itself. This makes it difficult to follow at times.
Good option to read & perhaps combined with audio to compliment it.
The author takes a narrow view of strategy. Although game theory is useful in understanding how a competitor may maneuver and this can be used to determine how best you can position yourself in anticipation or in reaction to an opponent's move, I'd argue this book is more about tactics than strategy.
I would recommend and will purchase the hardcopy as a great reference and case study product. The narration was just horrible. A wonderful and well-written text with a robot reader. Why would Audible subject their audience to this one--youck!
Are you kidding? This performance can go nowhere but up. Terrible!
This is a book that I found very interesting. The quantitative decision making process is one of my favorite process tostudy and theorize upon. Great illustrations. But buy the book, the narrator is like a robot. Sorry robots!
The content. There were dozens of casestudies that made it useful.
No. His performance was montone and dull at best.
No. It required some digesting
Although I wished I had a copy of the actual book to see the diagrams and charts, it was still a good book and I'm glad I listened to it.
"Narrator is text-to-speech robot"
I bought this book but it is unlistenable. It has been recorded using a text-to-speech robot and. Every. Sentence. Sounds. Like. This.
I. Only. Got. A. Few. Minutes. In. Before. I. Had. To. Ask. For. A. Refund.
Save yourself the hassle and don't bother. Audible should really remove this "audio book". Zero marks, folks
