One of the best insights into the heart and mind of a gambler ever written... moving and uplifting. And for poker-lovers, a must-read -- Des Wilson, author of Swimming with the Devilfish and Ghosts at the Table
A blasting, naked account of what it is to be a gambler * Jesse May *
His story is honest and raw, but with hints of underlying, unspoken tensions. His sheer determination is contagious, and his gutsy self-belief ensures the reader stands firmly in his corner throughout... The journey Brindley takes not only from the street corner to a television career, but also as a writer, is what makes his debut book so captivating -- Rebecca McAdam * Card Player Europe *
A triumph... Life's a Gamble is a truly fantastic book that is both entertaining and shocking to read at the same time. Roy Brindley has captured what is going on in the mind of an addicted gambler brilliantly. It is genuinely one of the best biographies and certainly the best poker biography I've ever had the pleasure of reading -- Barry Carter * Uk Poker News *
He's the gambler I always wanted to be * Nick Leeson *
