Overview

Stung: The Incredible Obsession of Brian Molony by Gary Stephen Ross

He was one of the brightest stars at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, a brilliant young banker on his way to the top. But Brian Molony had a secret obsession: he loved to gamble. The unsuspecting bank was soon fuelling that obsession, as Molony helped himself to hundreds of thousands, then millions, of dollars in fraudulent loans. Despite falling deeper and deeper in the hole, Molony convinced himself he could win it all back. Before long, the mild-mannered assistant manager had become one of the biggest high-rollers the casinos had ever seen and earned himself a place in the annals of criminal history.

Picked this book up because of it deals wirh gambling as an addiction. Very well written; I could feel Molony's desperation growing and intensifying. Any addiction is difficult to explain especially when so many say "just stop", but the author does a suburb job of developing the story, the players, and the addiction itself. I would highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with gambling or any addiction.

I saw the movie 'Owning Mahowny' starring Phillip Seymour-Hoffman, which is based on the book. I thought it was an amazing story, Brian Molony was a machine when it came to gambling, the Iceman. I used this book for an oral presentation on in a Criminal Justice class, everyone seemed to enjoy his story.
