I'm about 60 pages in to The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist's Guide to Success in Business and Life by Avinash K. Dixit and Barry J. Nalebuff and recommend it highly. It is the most thought-provoking book I've read in ages.
May I recommend "Power" by Bertrand Russell, which I have nearly finished. Published in 1938, it has hardly dated at all, and his predictions are very good. This man had a brain.
I particularly like his dismissal of Marxism.
There aree plenty of used copies around.
