Editorial Reviews

Errol Black
Powerful and moving...merits wide readership...should be read by all those politicians who are so adept at counting up the proceeds from VLTs but blind to the costs VLT gambling inflicts on society.
John Dafoe
Focuses a clear and powerful light on one of the great unacknowledged social calamities of our time- VLTs....road map to healing.
