IN THE PRESS
Not having dabbled in the world of gambling in casinos before, on purchasing this book I was slightly unsure if I would find it interesting or even understandable. I thought I may not be the right demographic but I need not have worried! This book is interesting, unusually gripping and provided me with a highly entertaining (and informative) insight into casino life. The author has a unique voice; the chapters differ in style and prose which ensures the book is consistently animated. A regular casino goer or not, I highly recommend this book for anybody (...over 18!) who wants a refreshing, funny read from your average, modern-day book.
'Slugs, Snails and Casino Tales'
A very unique and enjoyable book, worth buying if you're looking for something a bit different to read or curious about what lies underneath the glamour of casinos.

'Have You Ever Thought?'
An interesting, thought-provoking read that tackled sensitive topics of love, life and death. This is the second book I have read by the author and it is apparent he can aptly vary his prose and writing style to suit the particular stories and themes he wants to convey to the reader. Highly recommend to anyone who wants something different from their usual monotonous, mundane fictions!
