Description


"Timothy J. Nilsson's engaging first-hand narratives detail the parallels of gambling addiction to drug addiction. His fascinating and disturbing stories necessarily prod gambling addicts and their innocent victims toward the exemplary programs of Gamblers Anonymous."

Professor John Kindt, Em., University of Illinois


The compulsive gambling crisis in this country today is bleeding profusely. Counselors and therapists warn of the possible entrapment of our youth. Gambling helplines are getting flooded with calls 24 hours a day. Ages range from the very young to the elderly at gambling treatment centers. What this all equates to is a massive $120 billion industry tipping the scales of disadvantage. In the "pros" and "cons" world of compulsive gambling, the pros can be counted on one hand while the cons stretch for miles.

There is one common denominator that best describes every case of compulsive gambling: It never ends well. The only solution to compulsive gambling is recovery. This book has all the answers for those who choose to recover and for those who need more knowledge about the gambling mania that is hemorrhaging at this very moment.


"On Gambling illustrates the devastating impact of government-sanctioned gambling on the very citizens that our leaders are elected to protect. Our lawmakers must rethink their own addiction to gambling revenue, starting with a significant allocation of funds to help those in recovery. Definitely a must read for all Americans as 'we all pay even if we don't play.' "

Lorri Pickens, Executive Director, Citizens Against Expanded Gambling, Inc.
