From my own very real travails, yes it takes a while to crank out a book.

But I would go with a different forward on this one to emphasize that pool is just not very easy and in fact, to hit a round object, with another round object, that has been struck by a round object makes it a triple tough endeavor. Sure, there are some naturals out there that, straight out of the box, play like Efren. But for most of us it's a tough slog. And the path to success is to work hard, pay attention, wash and repeat. Everyone else can buy the "magic book."

Yes, this is very true.

And some PSRs will allow you to play pretty well. BUT, if you want to play at your highest speed you have to abandon those and a player must seek out the PSR that delivers what you've alluded to.

I guess I could put out a DVD...

And then maybe another DVD if I messed anything up in the first one...

And then release the book!

I know for a fact that Efren and Dennis and Buste use your system, Lou. They gave me a WTF? look when I asked them about it but everybody knows that the Filipinos don't give up any secrets. I gave them a wink and a nod...

I like this guy's channel. Been a subscriber for quite some time. The straightforward approach is excellent, visualizing the line and then stepping into it, bringing your cue onto the line (usually sweeping it from one side or the other, not awkwardly straight down like a drawbridge). This method works well for snookee players, where the margin for error makes playing pool look sloppy, so it makes sense that the same straightforward method should work very well for pool players too.

I've played Efren and Buste so it's possible they saw what I was doing and stole it.

probably shared it
with Dennis

My claim to fame is having a winning record against Max Eberle. I just have to make sure I never play him again!

I heard some old guru taught Busti that wonky practice stroke then shoot to the middle.

Its companion: "How to Not be a Snowflake Online" should also do well.
