“Inside the Mind of a Gambler” offers a fascinating insight into the mind of a gambler and why they do what they do. This is in the form of a case study of a man called Guy and goes in depth into his gambling addiction. The book is split into the case study of a pathological gambler who hit the depths of despair and came back to lead a gamblingfree life, and then the book looks at the psychological side of the gambler. There is the advice from Guy himself, psychological strategist and a leading psychiatrist on how to quit.
Five Star Review on Amazon By Stephen Renwick

About the Author
Stephen Renwick (author of bestselling sports books ‘Tennis is Mental’ and ‘Tennis is Mental too’) is a psychology tutor who has undertaken research into gambling addiction. In this book he looks at a case study of a compulsive gambler known as Guy. The book looks in detail at the psychological aspects of gambling and inside the mind of a gambler. Although this is a case study, you will no doubt recognise patterns of behavior and mental processes that are common among the majority of pathological gamblers. After spending many hours quizzing Guy on his gambling habits and how he thinks, Renwick used it to form the basis of this book which aims to help other gamblers challenge their addiction and ultimately stop gambling completely. The book can also be used for psychologists and psychiatrists as a unique case study, along with any students studying gambling addiction or psychology.
