"When it comes to writing about gambling, Joseph Walsh, the acclaimed author of the gambling film classic "California Split", is the undisputed champ. In his new book, Gambler On The Loose, his style is insightful, often riveting and always laugh-out-loud funny. Despite some frightening experiences that almost cost him his life, his spirit remains undaunted. He writes about the fascinating world of gambling as only a genuine gambler can. I learned a lot and laughed even more." Jeff Haney Las Vegas Sun

Review:

"Freud once said that the mark of a perfect insight by the analyst is when the patient laughs. Mr. Walsh s book proves that Freud was right. It is brilliantly insightful and you can t help laughing at the truths it reveals about the mind of the gambler." --Dr. George Weinberg , a prominent psychologist, has written twelve books and been translated into twenty- three languages. His most recent is "Why Men Won't Commit".

"Gambler On The Loose refuses to let the gambler take himself that seriously. As the author says in his marvelously easygoing style, Don't buy a gun if you can't extract the fun. Thankfully, Walsh survived some rather harrowing experiences to bring us the immeasurable pleasure of his colorful and informative company." --David Matalon - Former President of TriStar Pictures and CEO of New Regency Pictures

"The flavorful way in which the author describes the plight of the gambler is flat out, rib-tickling funny! If you're one of us who enjoys a wager or two and can't identify with Gambler on the Loose, I suggest you check your pulse." --Alan Ladd Jr., Former president of 20th Century Fox and MGM Pictures.
