Summary of "Trampas": A journey through psychology and gambling in cinema.

What do Squid Game, James Bond books, and iconic movies like Casino and Snatch: Pigs and Diamonds, by Martin Scorsese and Guy Ritchie, have in common? Gambling. Through fictional characters and scenes from these and other films, successful series, as well as some passages and plots from novels, Navas and Perales construct an absorbing narrative where they present cutting-edge scientific findings about the world of gambling, as well as some of the most important theories in addiction psychology, decision making, consumer behavior, learning, motivation, and thought.
