Review quote

"Brian Castellani tells a fascinating story. He has a knack of weaving an interesting court case into the wider framework of the field of problem gambling. He intertwines the medical and legal issues together quite well. In the process he calls for a bio-psycho-social discursive framework as a corrective to the classical medical model. Advocates and opponents of the medical model would do well to heed his call. This book is a timely addition to the ongoing controversy that is pathological gambling."-- Henry R. Lesieur, Ph.D., Institute for Problem Gambling and author of The Chase: The Compulsive Gambler
