Similarly, as soon as I read the game theory comments I found myself asking: "well how does 'tit for tat' fit in", but 'tit for tat' never seemed to be addressed even though the work was known long before the book was published.
I found these oversights problematic, since they seemed to constitute one of the cores of the argument. They also hit one of my frustrations: the characterization that computation requires everything to be spelled out in exact detail. This is true for some systems some times, but does not completely cover the computational space.
I would have also liked to have seen a more detailed exposition of what appeared to be an anti-statistics stance on Hayek's part-- another aspect that seemed core and which, in my mind, required more grounding.
That said, it was a interesting book, the reviews just seem more favorable than justified, but Hayek is a polarizing figure.
