From the Back Cover:

"Byrne is to billiards what Shakespeare is to theater."-JERRY KARSH, PRESIDENT, U.S. BILLIARDS ASSOCIATION

Bestselling author, Hall-of-Famer, and master teacher Robert Byrne presents his most impressive effort yet: an exhaustive compendium of more than 350 pool shots that will take its place among the game's classic instructional books. Byrne's Complete Book of Pool Shots takes players on an accelerated trip from pool kindergarten to graduate school. Most of these expertly diagrammed shots are not widely known and many are described here for the first time-in many cases these are the secrets of a lifetime. Players of every skill level, including the most advanced, will find their game greatly strengthened by the clever moves Byrne has assembled.

*20 CATEGORIES OF POOL SHOTS-FROM TICKYS TO DOUBLE-KISSES
AND FROM JUMP SHOTS TO DIAMOND SYSTEMS
*SECRET SHOTS FOR WINNING GAMES
*VARIATIONS THAT WILL AMAZE AND INSPIRE

"I thought Byrne's best was already available, but this book proved me wrong. Takes the art of pool to another level with charm and wit . . . A masterpiece!"-Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman, ESPN and World Masters Trick Shot Champion

"Robert Byrne is a huge asset to our sport and one of the best instructors we've ever had. The shots in this book are very well selected, and I think this is his best book yet."-Jeanette "The Black Widow" Lee, WPBA Champion

"It's simple-without this book you'll start losing to people who have it. No matter how much you think you know about pool, you don't know this much."-Michael Shamos, author and curator of the Billiard Archive

Robert Byrne has won tournaments in eight-ball, nine-ball, and straight pool. In 1999 he won both the National Senior and National Amateur tournaments in three-cushion billiards. Named "best billiard writer" by Billiards Digest, his books and videos on pool have sold nearly a million copies. Byrne was inducted into the Billiard Congress of America's Hall of Fame in 2001. He lives in Dubuque, Iowa.
