All of Robert Byrne's Pool Books are great, and this book is no exception. It is great for the novice or experienced Pool player. You can pick up so much from Robert Byrne's instructions and explanations. I would recommend this book to anyone. In addition, Robert Byrne's have several DVD's out, and I find them highly beneficial as well, in most instances more beneficial than the books because you can pause, rewind, and completely visualize what he is saying. I would recommend any Robert Byrne’s products!
