Play Your Best Pool "Tops all previous 'how-to' books" on pool according to the National Billiard News. Here's why: It offers you a complete course on pool with hundreds of secrets, strategies, and perfectly drawn illustrations that will help you to improve all aspects of your game - whether you are a beginner, top amateur, or even a pro.
Forty photos demonstrate the correct stance, bridge, grip and stroke. Next is a complete course on aiming followed by a big chapter on shotmaking that shows you how to pocket cut shots, banks, combinations, billiards, and carom shots.
The lessons on using english will prepare you for a comprehensive course on play that will teach you how to control the cue ball like an expert play. Subjects covered: the position routes you must know, fine points of position play, and Capelle's 22 Principles of Position Play (which alone are worth far more than the price of the book).
