"Above all, this is a brutally honest, candid book about the treatment of problem gamblers that may have application to the other impulse, addictive, and compulsive disorders. This is a refreshing book, and I recommend it highly to all comers. It should be on everyone's reference shelf and read and reread." (PsycCRITIQUES, February 20, 2008)
