15 Year Anniversary for Play Your Best Pool

It is hard to imagine that it's been 15 years since the first copies of Play Your Best Pool rolled off the press.  

Along the way I have met so many wonderful people in the pool industry and I have received so much positive feedback from you, the players about how the books have helped you to improve your game - all of which had made the journey extremely rewarding.

My goal has always been to provide you with the best, most complete, accurate, and relevant instruction on the subject matter covered in each book. To meet this goal I've spent countless hours thinking about pool, testing theories and shots on the table, watching great players live and on DVDs from Accu-Stats, brainstorming, and writing books.

My second book, A Mind For Pool, was published in mid 1999, kicking off an eight year period in which I wrote a book a year (including a second edition of Play Your Best Pool). After Capelle's Practicing Pool was published in 2006, I took a break from writing about pool to author a soon to be published book about Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.  

During the break, however, I continued to write my monthly column for Pool & Billiard Magazine and to conduct research on several pool projects. Though I don't have a definite date for books and DVDs on the following subjects, I expect at least one of these projects will be published by the middle of 2011: aiming, straight pool, beginner's fundamentals, and a novel/screenplay.

To help celebrate my 15th Anniversary, I am offering a number of combo specials and free shipping on all orders in the U.S. Details are at http://www.billiardspress.com.

I want to thank those who have worked with me on my projects, my dealers, wholesalers, and each and every one of the more than 100,000 of you who have purchased, and hopefully improved your games as a result of reading my books. You have made it possible for me to continue my journey in pool.  In return, I look forward to continuing to work on your behalf in the years ahead.
