Review of one of our books, Luck, Logic, and White Lies: The Mathematics of Games
From the review:
This book is a must for anyone interested in gaming.
About three or four years ago, someone wrote to me about my master's thesis (topic: Misere games, ch. 26). I forget his name, but he was writing in German, and asked me to review the section on impartial misers games (fortunately, I read enough German to be able to review a technical chapter). It was a fairly light treatment, as I recall, but accurate as far as it went.
I wonder if this is the same book? If so, then ch. 26 probably references one of my papers.

Chapter 26 does indeed reference a paper of yours.

This world is creepily small.
I thought his name sounded familiar.
A few months later, another researcher in California (honestly, I think there are only about a half-dozen of us in the world) found an error in that paper, which I haven't had time to correct. I think it is far too detailed to have made it into this book, but now I am curious . . .

The book is obviously much more basic than you'd probably be interested in, but let me know if you want a copy.
I don't think I want a copy for my bookshelf (I try to cut down on books I own), but I would be interested in having a copy for a while to look through.

Email me your address, and I'll send you a copy. You can then float it back to me through the bitty
