What Players Think of
Byrne's New Standard Book of Pool and Billiards

"Marooned on a desert island with only a pool table? This is the book you should have grabbed when the ship sank."
"Chef Anton" Riniti, Twice U.S. Trick Shot Champion, Alta Loma, California

"Even after forty years of playing pool, I didn't know half of what was explained in Byrne's Standard Book of Pool and Billiards. I can't begin to explain how much I enjoyed it."
Fred King, Jackson, Michigan

"I'm disgusted with myself for not reading Byrne's Standard Book of Pool and Billiards twenty years ago. My best years were wasted because I thought I knew how to play pool. What a fool I was!"
Anthony Motola, Fairview, New Jersey

"The best book ever written on both pool and billiards. Should be on every player's shelf between the Bible and Shakespeare."
Michael Ian Shamos, billiard historian and Curator of The Billiard Archive, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"I can't imagine a more entertaining or well-written instructional book. I've spent many happy hours poring over its pages."
Gary Lechner, Sioux City, Iowa

"Clear diagrams, great graphics, and a writing style that is both engaging and deeply informed put this book in a class by itself. I recommend it to all my students no matter how good they think they are."
Fran Crimi, BCA Master Instructor, Crimi Billiard Academy, New York City, New York

"Robert Byrne's book is the Bible! The definitive and complete work on all the Games of pool and billiards, games I've been plying for fifty years!"
Jerry Orbach, actor, Star of Law and Order
