This course was recorded in Fall 2007.

Customer Reviews


Very good class. Anyone interested in game theory, strategy and/or negotiating should "attend" this class.

Great teacher and course

As others have said this is a great course with a great teacher. To date the lesson notes and summaries are only available directly from Yales website and not through iTunes U.

OMG! I was in a Yale Lecture!!

I have always regretted not being able to attend one of the Ivy Leagues and always wondered what a class there would be like! It is magical!
The professor has great sense of humor and passionate about the lecture!
I am gonna live the entire course!
Thanks Yale!!
