Speaking as a professional counselor, this is an excellent resource guide for anyone struggling with pathological gambling [or abuse]. I have shared copy with clients who asked if they purchased the book, could they write in their responses [this is from an attorney client who found the bk clear, refreshing, and which became an important tool in developing an effective relapse prevention plan].

The workbook is good and helpful. But it was disappointingly small. I was expecting a larger book for the price. That's my only complaint.

This is not meant to be a "stand alone" workbook. It seems to be intended to be used to support a class or seminar. The ad is not clear on this.

As someone who makes his living because of the existence of casinos I am always struck by the fact that some people just can't stop gambling. They would rather lose all their money and some would rather lose everything they have in life as long as they can play the games.

Now I don't think compulsive gamblers are any different than other addictive types. I knew someone who was told by his doctor that he was going to die - because he was running too much. The runner had thoroughly devastated his body and bled everytime he urinated.

The addicted will always be with us. This book addresses how to help them, if they can be helped. There is definitley something in the brain and in the personality that causes people to do the destructable.

This book is even better than expected. If you have a gambling problem, think you might have a problem or know someone who does, you will find this book very informative. This book could also be used by Clinicians for their clients. It really encourages the reader to take a hard look at what their gambling habits have cost them, in terms of lost time, money and relationships. This book would be helpful for the loved one of an addicted gambler. While gambling is meant for entertainment, it ceases to be entertaining when the compulsion to gamble takes over your life This book helps the reader to feel like they are not alone.
