Pool Player's Edge Reviews
The big problem with this book is you can't read the miniscule text used to illustrate the drawings. Don't get this book unless you wish to keep a magnifier handy. I'm a former newspaper editor, and I can tell you the font size on the drawings is smaller than "sports agate," really tiny. And this book was largely "covered" in the newer "Precision Pool, 2nd Ed." printing. This newer book is larger, printed on nicer, glossy paper, and way more easy on the eyes. "Edge" goes into some nice detail on various diamond numbering techniques, whereas "Precision" almost blows it off. That's a negative for the newer book. I have both now in my library and I'm not completely finished with either, but if you want just one book, I'd start with "Precision."
I ordered this for my husband who first got it from the library and then wanted a copy of his own. He reports that it's giving his game new dimensions.
Bought this for my dad. He loves it! Fast shipping and the book was practically brand New!
I really enjoyed Precision Pool, but I loved The Pool Player's Edge! While the first book gave its readers gems and tips in acquiring fundamentals and advanced skills, Kanov and Stauch provide an opportunity to troubleshoot and apply those skills in their latest book. The first section gives the reader tools to diagnose and fix problems in fundamentals, which everybody needs. I don't care who you are, when you are having trouble with your game, chances are it's your fundamentals that need tweaking. The "Quick Fixes" work great to get you back on track. But the real joy of this book is in the last two sections on 8-ball and 9-ball. The sections break each game into Phases - Opening Game, Middle Game and End Game that provide the reader with winning strategies and key shots to employ those strategies.
This is a great book fot the beginner and average player, it has a lot of techniques that will help build a game or develop and improve that of an average player.
