"I got this book a few weeks ago and haven't been able to put it down!! It has everything that a pool player could be interested in from beginner level to advanced. I have been playing for many years and yet found a lot of exercises I have enjoyed trying out and perfecting! This book has the history of the game, coaching to help you improve, trick-shots and much more. It is very well laid out and easy to read. Really enjoying it and would very much recommend it to any pool enthusiasts out there!!"
