Written by licensed psychologist and Jungian analyst Billye B. Currie Ph.D., The Gambler Romancing Lady Luck: A Jungian Exploration is a one-of-a-kind examination of gambling from a Jungian perspective. Exploring the archetypal underpinnings of the gambler through focus on the imagery of Lady Luck and the spectrum of human behavior ranging from casual gameplay to outright addiction, The Gambler Romancing Lady Luck applies case stories to illustrate its insights into the internal and external forces that encourage humans to play games of chance. A handful of black-and-white illustrations add a touch of classic imagery of Lady Luck to this thoughtful, serious-minded dissection of human motivations and compulsions.
