This Is Gambling
Nick Constable (au)
Throughout recorded history, people have placed wagers on all manner of unpredictable outcomes. For many, the roll of the dice & the outcome of the race are adrenaline-fueled elements of their everyday lives. But in some cases, this perpetual thrill-seeking becomes an obsession, the characteristic buzz of anticipation as symptomatic as any other addiction. This book studies this particular human trait in detail to discover exactly what’s so addictive about placing a bet. In an objective investigation into the world of betting shops, casinos & race tracks, it lays out the unvarnished facts, giving an insight into the world of chancing your luck & seeing if you really can beat the odds -- or does the House always win?
