"I would thoroughly recommend this comprehensive and clear CBT manual to clinicians treating problem gamblers. It is easy to follow and detailed in rationale and guidance to assist practitioners of varying levels of experience and knowledge to deliver effective treatment." - Melanie Walls, Behavioural and Cognitve Psychotherapy, Volume 40, 2012

"A comprehensive review of the literature concerning the development, maintenance and treatment of problem gambling underpins the treatment programme presented. The programme itself delivers valuable insights into the assessment and formulation of the difficulties and needs problem gamblers have. Excellent psychoeducation resources, cognitive behavioural coping skills, relapse prevention and motivational interviewing strategies are detailed within it. ... The sessions are clearly explained and a rationale is offered for their use, allowing therapists to comfortably navigate the programme implementing sessions at a duration, frequency and distribution applicable to their client. The practicality of this guide is possibly its strongest attribute with work sheets for both client and therapist provided in the appendix. The discussion and exploration of cultural differences in attitudes to gambling further highlight the applicability of this book to clinical work." - Deanna Hall, Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling & Psychotherapy, 2012
