Summary

When should you adopt an aggressive business strategy? How do we make decisions when we don’t have all the information? What makes international environmental cooperation possible?
Game theory is the study of how we make a decision when the outcome of our moves depends on the decisions of someone else. Economists Ivan and Tuvana Pastine explain why, in these situations, we sometimes cooperate, sometimes clash, and sometimes act in a way that seems completely random.
Stylishly brought to life by award-winning cartoonist Tom Humberstone, Game Theory will help readers understand behaviour in everything from our social lives to business, global politics to evolutionary biology. It provides a thrilling new perspective on the world we live in.

    Hello, boys and girls, and welcome to the wonderful world of words! You've learned the basics—from apple to zebra—but what about all those mysterious new terms you've heard the grown-ups whispering when you were supposed to be tucked up snugly in bed? 
    What makes Mommy so bitter? Where does Daddy conceal the door to his secret S&M dungeon? And why is everyone laughing about Grandma's latest delusion? 
    My First Dictionary answers these questions, and includes many other useful definitions, such as: 
    A burden is a source of worry or stress. Old people are usually burdens. 
    Father is nostalgic. He is remembering the happier times before you were born. 
    A puppy is a young dog. Connie gets a puppy every time she agrees not to tell. Daddy calls them hush puppies. 
    A zigzag is a jagged line. We can tell that Mother has been drinking when she drives in a zigzag pattern.

    Japan is a place of special fascination for the acclaimed international comics creator Igort, who has visited and lived there more than 20 times, and worked in the country's manga industry for more than a decade. In this masterful new book—part graphic memoir, part cultural meditation—Igort vividly recounts his personal experiences in Japan, creating comics amid the activities of everyday life, and finding inspiration everywhere: in nature, history, custom, art, and encounters with creators including animation visionary Hayao Miyazaki. With beautifully illustrated reflections on subjects from printmaking to Zen Buddhism, imperial history to the samurai code, Japanese film, literature, and manga, this is a richly rewarding book for anyone interested in Japan or comic arts practiced at the highest level.

    In Dating Disasters 101, this e-book original gathers strips from the popular cartoon strip, Luann. Still pining for Aaron Hill, Luann accidentally agrees to a date with the reclusive, slightly socially inept Gunther. Through his non-violent resolution with two bullies at a miniature golf course, Gunther endears himself to Luann, who ends the date with a peck on Gunther’s cheek. But Luann isn’t the only one thrown into romantic mishap; her brother Brad proves opposites attract when he begins dating the cultured and intelligent Diane. Double dates and uncomfortable father-son talks ensue as the siblings grapple with their new, confusing romantic relationships.Featuring funny and revealing behind-the-scenes commentary by creator, Greg Evans.Readers of all ages love Luann, a strip about the trials of  becoming a  young adult. Known for its rich characters and intriguing  “what will  happen next” storylines, Luann enjoys a reader  loyalty rare on the comic  page, consistently ranking among the top five  in reader surveys. Greg  Evans was voted Outstanding Cartoonist of the  Year in 2003 by the  National Cartoonists Society, partly for his  efforts in holding up Luann  as a fine example of the positive  power comic strips can have. “My aim  is to touch readers’ hearts as  well as their funny bones,” says Evans,  who’s humorously touched on  serious issues such as peer pressure, drugs,  alcohol and young love.  “Adolescence is a very funny time—except  when you’re in it.”
