Justyn had everything. Stunningly successful in the world of re-insurance, he was being fast tracked for further promotion in a global company. He had wealth, a big house, a Porsche, a Mercedes. He had a beautiful wife and three sons. He lost it all, blowing three quarters of a million pounds in three years. He spent his wife’s money. He then used his corporate card at work to fund his habit. This cost him his job, and then his wife, children, home and reputation. He barely escaped criminal prosecution, and considered suicide. But this is also a story of hope. Justyn stopped gambling overnight through a miraculous and dramatic healing. “God has restored much of what I lost and is continuing to do so,” he explains. “I am slowly dealing with the consequences of my habit.” Today Justyn speaks widely about the dangers of gambling.

Kevin Twaddle was a footballer who was always prepared to take a risk on the park but it was off it where he really gambled. The former Hearts, Motherwell and St Johnstone winger speaks openly for the first time about his secret betting addiction that saw him blow more than a million pounds and wrecked his football career. Kevin tells his harrowing story of what his punting did to his family, how it killed relationships, destroyed his bond with his daughter and almost caused his parents to split up. He talks about his addiction and how it led to him stealing, going to loan sharks, left him facing jail and considering the ultimate gamble - suicide - before he finally got his life back on the straight and narrow. Kevin, who has since gone on to play pool for Scotland, has now not had a bet for more than six years, holds a prominent position in Gamblers Anonymous and also uses his experiences to help the Professional Footballers Association (Scotland) to educate today's footballers on the pitfalls of gambling. This is the harrowing and moving story on how one man's life fell apart spectacularly because of his addiction to gambling and how, after hitting rock bottom, he finally managed to conquer his demons.

Why do so many gamblers risk it all when they know the odds of winning are against them? Why do they believe dice are "hot" in a winning streak? Why do we expect heads on a coin toss after several flips have turned up tails? What's Luck Got to Do with It? takes a lively and eye-opening look at the mathematics, history, and psychology of gambling to reveal the most widely held misconceptions about luck. It exposes the hazards of feeling lucky, and uses the mathematics of predictable outcomes to show when our chances of winning are actually good. Mathematician Joseph Mazur traces the history of gambling from the earliest known archaeological evidence of dice playing among Neolithic peoples to the first systematic mathematical studies of games of chance during the Renaissance, from government-administered lotteries to the glittering seductions of grand casinos, and on to the global economic crisis brought on by financiers' trillion-dollar bets. Using plenty of engaging anecdotes, Mazur explains the mathematics behind gambling--including the laws of probability, statistics, betting against expectations, and the law of large numbers--and describes the psychological and emotional factors that entice people to put their faith in winning that ever-elusive jackpot despite its mathematical improbability. As entertaining as it is informative, What's Luck Got to Do with It? demonstrates the pervasive nature of our belief in luck and the deceptive psychology of winning and losing.

Tony 10 was the online betting username of Tony O'Reilly, the postman who became front-page news in 2011 after he stole e1.75 million from An Post while he was a branch manager in Gorey. He used the money to fund a gambling addiction that began with a bet of e1 and eventually rose to e10 million, leading to the loss of his job, his family, his home - and winning him a prison sentence. From the heart-stopping moments in a hotel room in Cyprus with his wedding money riding on the Epsom Derby, to the euphoria of winning half a million over a weekend, to the late goals and the horses falling at the last fence, Tony 10 is the story of an ordinary man's journey from normality to catastrophe. At times, he vowed to get out while he was ahead, only to be taken by another surge of adrenaline, falling deeper and deeper into a compulsion that consumed his life. His disappearance on the morning the fraud was discovered led to a surreal three days on the run in Northern Ireland, and ultimately his arrest, conviction and sentencing to four years in jail. Tony 10 is a mesmerising story of the secret life of a pathological gambler - as well as the most compelling account yet of the damage wrought by the online gambling industry.

Man from the South is a short, sharp, chilling story from Roald Dahl, the master of the shocking tale. In Man from the South, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a man takes part in a very unusual bet, one with appalling consequences . . . Man from the South is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others. 'The absolute master of the twist in the tale.' (Observer ) This story is also available as a Penguin digital audio download read by Stephen Mangan. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.
