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.

In his forty-three years as a practising lawyer, Kevin O’Donnell encountered a wide and sometimes weird mixture of characters lawyers, clients, police officers, and others. When it came time to tell the story of his career, he knew that he didn’t want to write a book only about the law; he wanted to write a book about the people with whom and for whom he worked. Some of these stories may come off as improbable or even impossible, but they’re all true. He shares tales of the more notable people he had the privilege of dealing with and the unusual situations those associations created. He received the occasional threat of violence, but fortunately, none of them came to pass. He also survived the aggression of his peers, in and out of court. During his experience as a law student, articled clerk, employee lawyer, senior associate for substantial law fi rms, and partner in a fi rm in regional Victoria, he saw it all— and some of the best anecdotes from those years await within. Many of the people he writes about are still his friends (and some never were), while some of them are now deceased. They’ve all provided him with amusement over the years, as well as wry smiles as he brought their shared adventures to life in his memoir.

WARNING: This video game may impair your judgment. It may cause sleep deprivation, alienation of friends and family, weight loss or gain, neglect of one's basic needs as well as the needs of loved ones and/or dependents, and decreased performance on the job. The distinction between fantasy and reality may become blurred. Play at your own risk. Not responsible for suicide attempts, whether failed or successful. No such warning was included on the latest and greatest release from the Warcraft series of massive multiplayer on-line role-playing games (MMORPGs)--World of Warcraft (WoW). So when Ryan Van Cleave--a college professor, husband, father, and one of the 11.5 million Warcraft subscribers worldwide--found himself teetering on the edge of the Arlington Memorial Bridge, he had no one to blame but himself. He had neglected his wife and children and had jeopardized his livelihood, all for the rush of living a life of high adventure in a virtual world. Ultimately, Ryan decided to live, but not for the sake of his family or for a newly found love of life: he had to get back home for his evening session of Warcraft. A fabulously written and gripping tale, Unplugged takes us on a journey through Ryan's semi-reclusive life with video games at the center of his experiences. Even when he was sexually molested by a young school teacher at age eleven, it was the promise of a new video game that lured him to her house. As Ryan's life progresses, we witness the evolution of videogames--from simple two-button consoles to today's complicated multi-key technology, brilliantly designed to keep the user actively participating. As is the case with most recovering addicts, Ryan eventually hits rock bottom and shares with the reader his ongoing battle to control his impulses to play, providing prescriptive advice and resources for those caught in the grip of this very real addiction.

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.
