Reviews

"The book is logical and self-explanatory, covering the role of the gambling industry - the role of society - women's relationships with others and themselves - and what hitting rock bottom is. ...Excellent short and precise case studies take readers in to the person's experience. Karter shares her experiences and work. She explores assessing reality, creating a therapeutic experience, ambivalence and relapse prevention. It is accurate and precise, while offering opportunity for reflection. I recommend it to addiction counsellors for their library of reference material. Patients will also relate to so much of it that it will motivate them to recovery." - Peter J Davies, Addiction Today, 2013
