Hey Conor — altMBAer here. I’m in the process of reading “Finite and Infinite Games”, in part because I was nudged by two other altMBAers to do it.
Having a similar experience in reading this book. The contrast between the Finite Player and the Infinite Player is something that I keep finding in many situations in life: as I refinance my house; as I look for a job; as I attempt to pledge a leadership position at work; as I consider the education that my two year-old niece will receive; and so forth.
Thanks for writing about this. I wish more people would read, and then re-read it to capture the depth of thought and ramifications in real life.
