About the author

Stephen Katz is a graduate of Penn State University having majored in finance. Since graduation he has worked for over twenty-five years in the computer graphics printing business mostly dealing with engineering and design applications. He has been involved with gambling since being a teenager having gambled many thousands of times at casinos, horse racetracks, stock brokerage firms, sporting events, card games and more. He has experimented with hundreds of different gambling systems, strategies and techniques. He has discussed gambling with thousands of other gamblers. He has explored the world of gambling to the fullest. A lot of money was lost but there was always the hope that with a new system, better skill or just some good luck then today could be the start of making money. At some point it had to be acknowledged that making money at gambling was not going to happen. There was a need to quit gambling but the desire was still there. Everyday the thoughts were there that today could be a lucky day at gambling.

Stephen decided to write down some truthful, hard-hitting, thought provoking notes to provide himself with the knowledge to quit gambling. The starting of the notes got him to cut back on gambling but he did not completely quit. He kept writing. At some point the notes became so powerful that he did quit. He knew that he would never again be a customer of the gambling industry. The notes were shared with friends and they also decided to quit being a customer of the gambling industry. He still kept writing and the notes blossomed into this book. Stephen’s knowledge, experiences and research are all concentrated in the book.

The past for Stephen cannot be changed but he wishes this book would have been available when he was a teenager. After obtaining the information in this book as a teenager, he may never have started gambling. If gambling had started, then he would have quit sometime shortly thereafter when gaining the knowledge and following the guidance of the book.

For Stephen, the knowledge of this book has completely eliminated the desire to be a customer of the gambling industry. Sometimes he does get a sudden urge to gamble when watching an advertisement or promotion from the gambling industry and their friends. Sometimes he does get a sudden urge in other circumstances. However with each passing day these urges grow weaker and less frequent. These urges could always happen but there is not any worry. The powerful knowledge of this book very quickly extinguishes these urges. For his friends with whom this book has been shared, the desire to be customers of the gambling industry has been eliminated. The sudden urges of these friends to be customers of the gambling industry get extinguished. Stephen would like to include you as one of these friends.
