Everyday systems based on game theory

Dear Reinhard,

I have a German source for you that you should know about...

Christian Rieck is a German professor for Game Theory who has a YT channel where he discusses various topics from a Game Theory point of view.

But most importantly, he just published a book where he applies Game Theory (including but not limited to Gamification) to all applicable topics like productivity, procrastination etc.

I hope there will be an English version in the near future, but for now it might be a jewel for you.

I have read all the english literature on related topics, but this is (maybe) the most interesting approach I have stumbled upon in the past 20 years.

Too bad the audio book isn't read by him himself, but it's still good.

Thanks for the interesting stuff you do, with greetings from Berlin

Interesting! Thank you, Alex! I will definitely check this out. Looks right up my alley (und eine gute Übung für mein Deutsch!)
