I didn’t know much about game theory or what is was, but since I was designing a game based on Pride and Prejudice (and I enjoy academic things) I thought Michael Chwe’s book “Jane Austen: Game Theorist" would be a good one to read. When I got stuck re-writing Event Cards in one of the later revisions, I went to the book and drew a lot of inspiration from various P&P scenarios that Chwe points out and how they relate to strategic thinking. Several cards were inspired by the book. Excellent read! You can read about it here.
