Compulsive Gamblers the Tragic Results
Sachar, David
ISBN: 1876494336
The Oracle Press, Qld January 1, 2000  2000 
  8vo softcover 191pp very good. According to statistics up to 82% of Australians gamble. Of these 333,000 experience gambling problems and 140,000 are considered to be compulsive gamblers. Australia has the dubious distinction of having 10% of the world's gambling machines. A small town in New South Wales has a poker machine for every 30 people. This book brings to light many heart rending stories of compulsive gamblers who have lost their money, their business, their families and their self-esteem. They have lost all hope of reconstructing their lives and many of them have become a burden to society. This human tradgedy gnaws at every corner of the land. The author is greatly concerned about the growth and proliferation of gambling machines and devices and says the government has a lot to answer for. The amount of revenue it collects from the gambling industry is enormous. The author doubts that any radical measures will be implemented to end the misery inflicted on gamblers and their families. It is David Sachar's fervent hope that potential gamblers who read this book will seriously consider the consequences of gambling and not take the risk.
