"If you want to give up gambling, buying this book will be the best money that you ever spend. [It] helped me understand my gambling addiction, it helped my family come to terms with my gambling addiction and it put me on the road to recovery. Phil understands gambling, has lived it, knows what you are going through, and knows how to make a difference."
"Phil's book helped me understand in the early stages of my recovery that the cause of gambling harm isn't simply faults with individuals, but addictive gambling products and a culture of liberalisation. This gave me both the outlook and the confidence to campaign successfully against Fixed Odds Betting Terminals."
"Phil's book is honest, emotional and makes sense of one of the most complex addictions. This moving, true story offers a genuine coping strategy to overcome an addiction which proves to be devastating, not only to the gambler, but to all of those closely connected."
"For someone who is struggling with a gambling addiction this is an excellent step by step guide to having self-control over their issues they are facing. For someone who has not experienced gambling addiction it demonstrates how powerful a draw gambling can be and comparisons with other addictions (ie quitting smoking) allows the reader to really appreciate the depth of the problem."
