In addition to the books already mentioned, you may want to pick up any of the books written by Johnny Holiday. I know of only two that he wrote. I believe one is continuous high runs in straight pool.

He wrote three. I think the most useful feature of them are the "how should you run these" diagrams. They are hard to find now. Here are pictures of the three:

Do you remember something else that was particularly helpful in them?

I read them over 20 years ago. For me, at that time, I appreciated hearing a pros thought process when navigating a rack as well as nuisances about how to stroke the cue ball on shots.

Pat Fleming has a good instructional that addresses break shots. It might be on YouTube.

I have the two books in the middle. I also have the Jimmy Caras book on the right. I looked up Jimmy’s address / phone number when he lived in Bryn Mawr Pa back in 88 or 89 and called him. He said I could come over so I took my 4 year old with me. He took us down his basement and showed us his table and some of his memorabilia. He and his wife were very nice.

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility lies in being superior to your former self !
