Practice routines isolate specific skills that will help you develop a complete game, you're also provided with a game plan to help you break your all-time high run record.

A book everyone can get something from
April 6, 2012
When great books are discussed on the subject this isn't one of them. You won't find such a book on any 'must own' book lists because it is neither an all encompassing book or a book targeted at today's two most popular games. However, it may be the finest straight pool book on the market. Because of that, it may be the finest pool book on the market. Every game has skills that are a byproduct of the skills needed to play great straight pool and no other book lines them out like this one. When it comes to managing position, patterns, clusters and safeties few others go into the depth and clarity found here.

This book on straight pool is packed with info that I have not seen in most books. And it goes into amazing depth with each subject. Especially interesting is the 3 parts of the game in each rack and how to run a rack. IT's the best book I have read so far on pool, period.

Best book on Straight Pool EVER! 1. Straight pool will make you a better play since you have to run more balls, break up more clusters, work in tight spaces, do more combo\'s and caroms, have PRECISE cue ball control, get used to bridging over balls, and so much more. And this book will teach you the secrets of pattern play, shot selection, pitfalls of sloppy position, etc. Get this book and you will learn sooo much!
