THE SCIENCE OF POCKET BILLIARDS covers the complete spectrum from the basic fundamentals to the most complex concepts in pocket billiards. There are no opinions, no fairy tales from dead pool players, and no Voodoo explanations that violate the laws of physics in this book. Every concept from stance and stroke to cue-stick induced deflection is examined from a technical point of view. Take english as an example concept. English is examined and analyzed in minute detail. There is inside english, outside english, draw english, follow english, running english, and reverse english. Then add to that collision-induced english, transferred english, and cushion-induced english. It may sound like the concept of english is a chaotic mess but it all comes together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Bank shots are a problem for everyone and especially so for the casual pool player. The brain of each individual is wired a little differently. A banking system that works best for one person may not work for another individual. This book presents eight different banking systems; try them all to determine which system works best for you. POOL & BILLIARD MAGAZINE has the largest circulation of any monthly pool magazine in the world. In their August 1994 issue they did an evaluation of all the available instructional books and video tapes. They concluded, "Subjectively and, I hope, objectively, I think "THE SCIENCE OF POCKET BILLIARDS" by Jack H. Koehler is the best." THE SCIENCE OF POCKET BILLIARDS covers the entire spectrum from the basics to the most advanced concepts in pool. The occasional player can skim through the book and learn enough for a lifetime of casual play while an avid pool enthusiast can study this book for months, or even years, and continue to gain knowledge. 8 1/2 X 11, 253 pages (Paperback only)

A “fascinating” memoir by America’s greatest professional billiards player, a child prodigy in the pool halls of the 1930s who became a world champion (Library Journal). Willie Mosconi’s father never wanted him to play billiards. At night, the boy would lie awake listening to the clatter of balls downstairs in the family pool hall, and when his father wasn’t around, he would climb onto an apple crate to practice his shots. When his dad started locking up the balls and cue, young Willie improvised with potatoes and a broom handle. By the time he was 7 years old, he was good enough to play against Ralph Greenleaf in a match billed as “The Child Prodigy vs. The World Champion.” It was the start of a magnificent career that would include an unprecedented 15 world championships and the record for most consecutive balls run without a miss: 526. Nicknamed “Mr. Pocket Billiards,” Mosconi was instrumental in popularizing pool in America, serving as a consultant for iconic films such as The Hustler and The Color of Money and facing off against the famed hustler Minnesota Fats in 2 celebrated matches. Cowritten with journalist Stanley Cohen, Willie’s Game is the colorful, captivating autobiography of an illustrious champion who lifted his sport to new heights and played by one simple rule: If you don’t miss, you don’t have to worry about anything else.
