Using a grand piano as his prop, Haim Shapira explores the interplay between happiness and game theory in his contemplation of an eclectic range of theories. His books provide many humorous anecdotes and insightful examples of how our daily lives are affected by Game Theory, the mathematical formulisation of interactive decision-making. Drawing on literary and philosophical sources, Shapira invites us to challenge our perspectives on happiness. We all want to be happy, but what is happiness anyway?
