      Good bang for buck

    • This book lays out a step by step process on building your game up from the basics of fundamentals of stroke to position play, and touches on advances shots such as jump, and masse.
      The Goldmine of this book is the author transfers an easy application of phyics to shots. You get percentages of making shot from distance to cue ball to object ball, and angle. The author explains possition play better by an explaination of why the cue ball is rolling with this much energy with what english, and what angle off of the object ball.
      Beginners will get a goldmine of information that learning on the table would take hours and months to years to learn that understanding principles will give you a leg up on why and how.
      Advanced players will find alot of information that would be considered common knowledge. If your having trouble with specific shots or concepts the book goes into deep explaination of hows and whys. There are alot of diagrams, charts, and examples.
      I was a bit disappointed the book didn't go into masse shots, and jump shots deeper. All in all I enjoyed the information I recieved from this book. A good bang for my buck.
