The Straight Pool Bible: Personal Instruction from a World Champion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Straight pool, according to the Billiards Congress of America, "is generally considered to be the game that provides the greatest all-around test of complete pocket-billiards playing skill, requiring great concentration, accuracy, shot-making, defense, patience, and knowledge." In The Straight Pool Bible, legend Babe Cranfield, one of only thirty-eight inductees to the Billiards Congress of America Hall of Fame, shares a lifetime's worth of lessons. From minimizing cue ball movement and setting up the best possible break shot to playing safety and handling the pressure of competition, The Straight Pool Bible imparts the skills necessary for mastering pool's most demanding game. (51/2 X 81/4, 192 pages, diagrams)

Synopsis:

"Secrets of a world champion revealed with clear text and diagrams. This one will repay every minute you spend with it".--Mike Shamos, author of "The New Illustrated Encyclopedia of Billiards" and curator of the Billiard Archive. Illustrations throughout.
