Put your money where your mouth is you wanna-be pool sharks. The author, a pool-playing raconteur himself, says he studied the techniques of pool hustlers in the southeastern U.S. for 10 years. This primer-style instructional text is the result. Whether the book will help folks win money is arguable, but it's fun reading, and, hey, it can't hurt. Allen does not tell his readers how to play pool. The angles, shots, and strokes are another topic. Winning money is foremost here. Of course the key--which he stresses over and over--is an honest assessment of one's abilities. If a player can't handicap his or her own game, it's bye-bye bankroll. He discusses the mental side of gambling: assessing other players, creating winning situations, avoiding losing situations, playing during slumps, and being able to marshal one's ability to focus. Throughout, Allen uses anecdotes from his own experience to illustrate his points. Though the readership for this guide is limited, there aren't many--if any--similar books available. Buy as demand dictates. Wes Lukowsky
