Prisoner's Dilemma

I am reading —during the pauses— a fascinating book about the life of John von Neumann and Game Theory: Prisoner's Dilemma by William Poundstone.

Life and Work of von Neumann, the beginnings of Game Theory, the discussion about the atomic bomb and war, social dilemmas and other subjects are presented in an exciting way, easy to understand even to persons that have no idea about mathematics.

I still didn't finish it, and I have the feeling being smarter than before reading it! Strongly recommended to everyone!
