Plus a bunch of other pool books...
Starting bid $1.60:
One man's trash may very well be another man's treasure.
Having the opportunity to experience an era amongst road players through storytelling is well worth any price paid - and Woody's storytelling is indeed entertaining and even engrossing at times. Brought many smiles to those I have shared this book with.
This one belongs in the "treasure" column.
My advice: IF you have the opportunity and means to get ahold of a copy for many, many hours of entertaining reading, don't hesitate.

It ain't worth $10. Grady was an illiterate nincompoop who constantly uses "fancy" words wrong and couldn't spell for shit. His book is a garbled mess of syntax and misspellings. One critic, I forget who, wrote that this book "cries out for an editor." Obviously Grady edited the book himself. I don't think Grady ever went to high school.
Why is this book so valuable and sought after? Has anyone made a pDF of the darn thing?
You couldn't be more wrong if you tried.
I guarantee Grady would have bet you all the money he could get together, that he could beat you doing the New York Times crossword puzzle.
Nincompoops and illiterate non spellers, don't fare well with it.
Obviously you didn't like Grady, but you chose the wrong subject, to demean a dead man, who had friends who knew better.
I hope you realize, how small you seem by belabouring him here.
Some of you guys are just too much to take. How sour are you?
It's not $500. Anyone who ignores laws should have no problem making an illegal copy.It looks like it costs about $20 to have a company make a pdf from a book for you. Why are we paying $500+ to read this book?

Thanks to Disney, we have (from Wikipedia):What are the laws on an out of print book that you can no longer buy?
I wonder if Buddy owns the copyright to his book? If the publisher owned it, then what happens when the publisher no longer exists? does it go back to Buddy?
