About this book
“The definitive work on pool and billiards” (National Billiard News) by champion player Robert Byrne Now updated throughout and expanded with new material on strategy in eight- and nine-ball, trick shots, and billiard memorabilia, Byrne's New Standard Book of Pool and Billiards is the classic guide to cue games—complete with detailed diagrams and photographs to help improve play at every level.
Simply the best instructional book ever written on pool.Clear, wry, prose. Outstanding illustrations. I can't imagine trying to learn the game without this book.
This is the bible for anyone who wants to improve their pool game. However, you must seriously want to get better at pool because it reads like a textbook. Robert Byrne may not be the best pool player in the world, but he is an excellent teacher. After all he did not get into the BCA Hall Of Fame for his playing ability.
