Economics books have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Not this one. Most monographs in economics pitch an argument proceeding as follows. First the thesis is outlined. Then the supporting material is presented. Finally, a thread knits this material together in support of the original thesis. Manfred Holler dispenses with this structure for a reason. He wanders through ideas in economics, philosophy, history, and art interspersed with discussion of game theory in the context of a movie, flagging up issues in rational choice theory in a truly inter-disciplinary manner.
