Too technical for an audio book

What would have made Thinking Strategically better?

PDF's to accompany the audio.

Would you ever listen to anything by Avinash K. Dixit again?

Probably not, I would rather read it.

What didn’t you like about Mark Delgado’s performance?

A bit robotic.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It's technically a sound book, but not for audio, unless there are accompanying PDF documents. Narration could probably also have been better.

better read

Any additional comments?

Not a good book to listen to because it references several charts and performs many logical proofs.

Don't buy as and audible book

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not a good choice if you are going to listen to it as opposed to read it.

Horrible narrator :(

I feel like the book has valuable content, but I just can’t stand the narrator :( he sounds like a robot from 80s... couldn’t continue listening after 20 minutes :(

Good content best suited for printed book Not Audio

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.

Not suitable for audiobook

The book is hard to follow and in order to grasp the ideas one must have a text in front.

Game Theory

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.

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
