TAILS I LOSE REVIEWS
This is a brilliant book and brilliantly written - even if you are not addicted to gambling there is a lot to learn about what is important in life. I could not put it down. Highly recommend it for anyone who has an addictive personality and especially if they are gamblers. I am neither but still thoroughly enjoyed the book.
Having been in the same platoon as Justin at Sandhurst, reading his descent into the abyss of gambling addiction was astonishing.
This is a viscerally raw, honest account that everyone should read, if only to be aware of the dangers and be alert to the symptoms in themselves or others.
Wow, what an amazing read! It is so refreshing for an author to be so candid about their life to the point where they felt compelled to tell their story to help others. A brave, courageous action that will in turn change lives...and marriages. I felt so emotional reading the book I could not put it down!
Justyn is the son of the writer and speaker Jennifer Rees Larcombe and grandson of the evangelist Tom Rees. After a highly successful career in the British Army Justyn Rees Larcombe had an equally glittering and well-rewarded career in the City. He had everything. Stunningly successful in the world of insurance, he was being fast tracked for further promotion in a global company. He had wealth, a big house, a Porsche, a Mercedes. He had a beautiful wife and three sons. He lost it all through an addiction to online gambling, blowing three quarters of a million pounds in three years. Realising he could fall no further, he turned back to Christ, turned his back on gambling and, in the space of two years, found incredible recovery and restoration.
