Pool players now have the edge they need

Champaign, IL--The number of people who play pool in America is nearly double that of golf, creating a growing, and often overlooked, need for a resource that shows competitors how to take their games to the next level. Gerry "The Ghost" Kanov and Shari "The Shark" Stauch, top pros and editors of Pool & Billiard Magazine, fill that need for the more than 45 million pool participants with the second edition of their book Pool Player's Edge, offered in an all-new larger, full-color format.
The new design of Pool Player's Edge includes 208 illustrations and 50 photos of both male and female professionals at tournaments performing the skills discussed in the book. The authors also comment and provide tips and sidebars based on the photos and diagrams, giving readers a real inside look at the game. Additional updated content includes new chapters on controlling the cue ball for better shot making, game strategy for winning play, and practice drills and diagrams to perfect aim, breaks, and trick shots.
Kanov and Stauch cover 8-ball, 9-ball, straight pool, and one-pocket in the book. Particular focus is dedicated to 8-ball and 9-ball, the sport's two most popular games. By following the advice that these legends share in Pool Player's Edge, competitors looking for an advantage are certain to break away from the pack.
