By Art Schlichter, with Jeff Snook

Art Schlichter once had it all. The most-heralded high school quarterback Ohio had ever seen, he evolved into an All-American and Heisman Trophy candidate. By the time he was finished as a Buckeye, Woody Hayes called him the best to ever play for Ohio State. He had fame, fortune, and matinee idol looks that made women swoon, but beneath his confident exterior, Schlichter's insecurities surfaced in a constant drive to gamble. By the time he reached his mid-30's, he had gambled away more than $1.5 million, his All-American image, his family, his self-respect, and his freedom. Busted is the candid, sometimes shocking, sometimes funny, yet appalling story of how a severe gambling addiction controlled the life of one of Ohio's greatest athletes.
