Reviews

“Problem Gambling is a valuable and interesting read. While academics and those with some background knowledge of psychology will have the greatest appreciation for this book, it would also be suitable for treatment providers or those who wish to gain an overview of some of the current issues surrounding problem gambling and current problem gambling research and legislation in the United Kingdom. … a useful reference volume, with directions for further literature for each respective field.” (Melanie Hartmann, International Gambling Studies, Vol. 15 (3), July, 2015)
