Thanks for the list, RJ. I'm going to print it out to keep abreast of what I'm missing. I got both Capelle's and Bob's latest books and I'd recommend 'em both. Except I'd say Capelle's book may be a little less useful to B players and above, though no less instructive.

After you've read and mastered all those books you might want to give your brain and nerves a break and chill out with my story about faith and redemption...oops...I mean...my story about young pool players in 1960's New England...the clothes...the cars...the music...hey wait I keep thinking it's a movie...

The list at http://users.skynet.be/billard.billiards/auteur.htm has about 450 books, but many of them are not in print and some of them are not in English. Most of them are still available on the used book market.

Thanks for the information. I have a customer whose business is billiards stuff including books --- he has been looking for a book I would like (Buddy Hall's Rags to Rifleman) so I will pass this info on to him and see if he has located a copy.

I made a new list of my duplicate books, which now has about 210 titles. I think it's best to sort the list alphabetically by author's last name. See http://www.sfbilliards.com/books_to_trade.htm

I've got a weird one I bought in 93 or so called Teach your self pool (sic) by Chris Raftis. It has many good photographs of ball movements, etc. and even a few of the author in his wheelchair shooting. The address in the book for more info is: CR Billiards, PO Box 02903 Detroit Mich 48202

The previous edition(s?) was called Cue Tips.

The book by Johnny Holiday is a small paperback book with no color pictures. It is available for about $10.

The Encyclopedia by Victor Stein and Paul Rubino is probably the one you saw. Copies are available from time to time on eBay for $200 or so. There were two editions. The second edition has added information on cues.

I believe that Chris moved back to Greece about 10 years ago. He has published several books:

Cue Tips on Pocket Billiards, 1989, 186pp, PB

Cue Tips, Programmed Pool Shots, Chris Raftis, published with ad
by Stroh's beer, looks like 1970's or so

Tricks And Tips For Everyone, by Chris Raftis, 192 pages, 1993, C.R.
Billiards, Detroit, MI.

Tricks & Tips, For Experienced Players, by Chris Raftis, 32 pages, C. R.
Billiards, Detroit, MI.

Teach your self POOL, Chris Raftis, 1991, ISBN 1880135000300
