This book is spot on, and thus extremely depressing (but still spot on). I basically followed the section which broke down how to talk to your gambler, including where to pause, verbatim in talking to the gambler in my own life (I rehearsed a bit because I used to get so flooded.) I bought a used copy and refer to it occasionally these days to remind myself of why gambling can be so toxic, and to remind myself of what I can be doing to practice self-care. I can now authoritatively explain to people how gamblers think, or at least explain how my gambler thinks, and this book gave me the words and concepts to do so. Again, I'm sorry if you have to read this book because you're probably already in a lot of pain. My only wish is this came as an audio recording so I can prompt others to listen to it while driving around.

The Snow Lion: A Spiritual Journey The author gives many examples of real life situations told from the perspective of the compulsive gambler and spouse. There are clear and direct methods to overcome compulsive gambling as well as methods to overcome the effects of living with a compulsive gambler. I would recommend this book to the compulsive gambler and to all those who are living with the compulsive gambler. I found it quite helpful.

I must say, it was a real eye-opener.

Anyone who is dealing with a CG will find this book helpful in the identification of this hard to see affliction.

A must read for anyone trying to cope with this issue. I used it for research in one of my Bio Behavioral Health classes on addictions, pulled an A!

This book is an excellent resource for an ever-growing problem in our society. It very effectively explores the origins, family responses, treatment, and prognosis for this form of addiction. It will help the spouse and family of an addicted gambler begin to understand and to get a grip on an addiction that has destoyed many families in recent times. It will give an understanding you may not find outside of a support group.
Interesting book.
