A must read book

This is a really good book. Easy to understand. After only reding first few chapters it gave me much better understanding of banking. My banks used to be 50% acurate. Now it is about 90% Now I bank with precision and ability to set up the q-ball for the next shot. Don't really care for all those stories though

I am a skill level 6 & & respectively so whilst not an expert, definitely not a complete novice and yet (and I have only read the first chapter so far) this book is not easy to follow at all. I have my own, quality table at home and play with a Predator P3 with a Z2 shaft and I have replicated the shots shown and to date, if I am making 5% of the shots shown, this is probably an over estimate. May be as I go through the book more, it may make more sense but right now, I am more confused than ever. On a lighter note, the stories the author tells are very funny and interesting.

This is a good book filled with lots of narrative about the old days of a pool hustler. Plus lots of info on banking it definitely improved my game, but the book is so complicated it is hard to follow a times.

this book is easy to understand and breaks banks down into bits of info you can handle. there is a saying that you can eat an elephant but you can't eat it all in one bite. this book shows you how to eat that elephant.

Good Info

Novice or pro can learn something from this book. A wise man (and great shooter) once told me that if you can pick up a piece of info that helps your game its worth a fortune. I learned a few things from this one.

Sometimes there IS money in the bank.

Great book!!!! Has a wealth of info. But......unless you know a whole lot about pool, and are able to keep it all in order ' in your head, it takes some very acute visualization skills. Illustrations are detailed, but sometimes hard to follow.
Very detailed and sometimes gets a little dry.
