From a review: Book is awesome! Very easy to read and applies to what I would call bar room pool. It isn't written overly technical like some expert books. Rather it gives you basic fundamentals that you can put into practice while at your local bar room or pool hall to win more games and wow your buddies.

Advanced Cue Ball Control Self-Testing Program

+++++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++++++++++++

This book prepares you for serious competition, i.e., top level tournaments and money games. The book is filled with layouts with a simple purpose - pocket the 1 Ball and then the 2 Ball.

(The problem is -- the first shot isn't easy, AND THEN you must figure out how to get position on that second ball.)

(Layouts were extracted from hundreds of hours of videos from professional tournaments.)

Also available in Print (Amazon).

From a review: I found this book extremely helpful. I found them to be very challenging. Some of them are quite natural and some far from it. Just like in a game. I also like that there is not an explanation of how to do the shots. Just a table diagram and the challenge of making ball A, getting position and then making ball B. Simple. Or is it?

This book is pain relieving aspirin for pool players. It relieves agony and suffering from failed position attempts!! It replaces the misery of failure with the joyful satisfaction of successful cue ball control.

Two ways to use the book: armchair study (thinking out the shots) and table practice (making your imagination real). Replace guesswork with trustworthy cue ball speeds/spins.

You are going to be playing pool for the rest of your life. There is no reason to experience the frustrations of bad shot selections.

If Sun Tzu (2500 years ago) played pool, this is how he would teach strategy & tactics. It is the Philosophy of War as it applies to the Philosophy of Pool!

Many aspects of the 2500 year old treatise on how to wage war have a direct application to the tactics and strategies used in pocket billiard games. The pool table is a microcosm of war that requires intelligent applications of offensive and defensive strategies and tactics.

Also available in Print (Amazon).

From a review: I thought this was a good book to read about. War being looked at the same way as playing pool. It changed my mind the way that I look at and play the game of pool.
