Pool is great fun, whether it's played among students at a campus recreation hall, or at home in the basement den. But it's also a game of skill, and playing it well requires knowledge and intensive practice. This book provides both, presenting detailed color illustrations and diagrams that show every aspect of the game. Better yet, this book can be opened to a specific lesson, then stood up on its specially designed cover that unfolds to become a stand. That way, students of the game can place the opened book within their line of vision as they practice shots on the table. The book literally becomes their pool coach, showing them a specific technique at the same time that they learn to perfect it in their own game. All aspects of the game are included, from cuing techniques to tips on game strategy. 25 specific exercises concentrate on improving fundamental skills, and 40 additional exercises for game practice show how to put those skills into play. The book's spiral binding keeps pages flat and easy to study while the player is preparing to make a shot. This attractive and instructive book also includes the basic rules of pool and their several variations.
