"Drs. Bowden-Jones and Prever have generated an important book on problem gambling in women from the perspective of women who conduct research and provide clinical care in this area. A particular strength of the book is the international perspectives communicated from the global group of authors contributing to the book. The book is important and timely and a valuable and authorative addition to the problem gambling literature." Marc N. Potenza, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Child Study and Neuroscience, Yale University School of Medicine
