Play Your Best Pool “Tops all previous ‘how-to’ books” on pool according to the National Billiard News. Here’s why: It offers you a complete course on pool with hundreds of secrets, strategies, and perfectly drawn illustrations that will help you to improve all aspects of your game – whether you are a beginner, top amateur, or even a pro.
Forty photos demonstrate the correct stance, bridge, grip and stroke. Next is a complete course on aiming followed by a big chapter on shotmaking that shows you how to pocket cut shots, banks, combinations, billiards, and carom shots.
The lessons on using english will prepare you for a comprehensive course on play that will teach you how to control the cue ball like an expert play. Subjects covered: the position routes you must know, fine points of position play, and Capelle’s 22 Principles of Position Play (which alone are worth far more than the price of the book).
Your success at 8-ball and 9-ball depends on your knowledge of each game. In two big chapters (packed with over 170 illustrations) you’ll learn all about offensive and defensive strategies. In addition, your game will benefit from solid advice on kick shots, safeties, pattern play, break shots, and much more.
 
It takes practice to develop a strong game – so Play Your Best Pool provides you with a skills building program that includes over 20 exercises and a game plan for making your practice sessions as fun and productive as possible.
Complete discussions on the mental game, competition, and how to improve will teach you how to think like a winner, and how to win tournaments, money games, and in league play.
Phil Capelle is the most prolific writer in the history of pool with nine big billiards books covering more than 3,300 pages! And, for the last 17 years he has been the lead instructional columnist for Pool and Billiard magazine.
“This one is one of those rare books from which you can actually learn something. Highly recommended”.  –  George Fels, Billiards Digest

(NOTE: See my guide “So you’d like to get really good at pool” for more book recommendations http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/syltguides/fullview/RXJ330779CJMS/ref=cm_sylt_byauthor_title_full_1)I have been playing pool seriously for a long time (nearly ten years). I have read tons of books and watched many hours of videos. Play your best pool is the most comprehensive single instructional resource I have encountered. I bought it early in my career and it has helped my game tremdously ever since. This book is a classic along with Robert Byrnes Standard Book of Pool and Billiards. If you were to only buy one book I recommend Play Your Best Pool although Byrnes book is a masterpiece as well.The lessons and tips are laid out in an easy to understand way and there are loads of diagrams to help you along the way. Everything is covered in this book. After reading you will have in depth knowledge of 1: Fundamentals (stance, alignment, grip proper bridging) 2: Stroking-…

This is THE book to have on pool! This book is THE book to have if you really do want to play your best pool! It functions on many different levels. I first read it straight through, and picked up a ton of information. Like I realized that I was hold in the cue wrong! Can you believe it! I had my hand inside the line and could not swing my arm in a true pendulum motion. Mind you I have been playing for many years and have been known to run a rack or two of nine ball. I learned a bunch on actual principle of getting “shape”. Stuff I thought I knew, or vaguely knew or had a concept of. But Mr. Capelle breaks it down to its most simple and clear forms. Now I know exactly how I want to come into a shape zone with the highest probability of success. Just those two pieces of information have changed the way I look at and play the game. The other really cool thing about the book is the massive, detailed table of contents with complete chapter breakdowns. This thing is a great reference tool. Say you want to…
