"An excellent guide and workbook to assist therapists in the treatment of pathological gambling."--PsycCRITIQUES
"[T]here are hundreds of books available on the topic of pathological gambling. Some are meant for researchers, some for clinicians, and others for the patients and families themselves. The majority of the self-help workbooks for sale, though, are not evidenced-based and have not been tested in a rigorous scientific manner. These two companion books--first-authored by one of the leading clinicians and researchers in the world on pathological gambling--are quite different. . . the materials presented in both books are accurate, easy-to-read, and applicable to every subtype of problem and pathological gambler. . .These two books would be excellent starter materials to any gambling treatment program or counselor who is beginning to gain experience in the management of pathological gambling."--Journal of Gambling Issues
