  gross mis-characterization , 01/04/2013
Reviewer: Al C
This book does contain a wealth of information regarding compulsive and problem gambling; however, it is a gross mis-characterization of the gambling industry. I have been a dealer and floor supervisor in Atlantic City for about 8 years. Additionally, I have suffered from gambling addiction and am now in recovery. I have regularly attended GA meetings and abstained from gambling for almost a year. This author's message that "the dealing of cards is a very simple endeavor...why do card dealers have to go to a dealer's school for two to three months..." and that dealers are secretly trained to manipulate the cards is offensive. Dealer's are extensively trained in game protection and procedures; not a simple endeavor. Clearly, Mr. Borresen has never tried dealing roulette to seven players, each playing a different color, value and non-value cheques. I can certainly understand and sympathize his disdain for the industry and their marketing strategies. But I cannot accept the wealth of MIS-information contained within his book.
