I am now 58 years old and I have played the game since I was a kid.

Today I'm an advanced amateur. I frequently help other players on the journey with instructions. Often I am asked what books and or videos I recommend.

One of the first books I got was mastering pool by George Fels. I read that book in about 28 hhours because I was starved for information at that time (about 1980). Today I have several books and videos.

I was starved for practice drills in the 80's and 90's. At my age it's hard to be disciplined enough to do the drills I know today.

I would love an opportunity to check out your book.

Jeremiah is a super cool guy, a solid player and a great asset to our local pool community here in New Mexico. If you don't get enough response on this thread J let me know I would love to review your book though I think there are more qualified people on az who may be interested.

I feel I should be chosen for this book review as I believe I'm your perfect target audience. I bought a cue about a year and a half ago and told myself I want to learn everything I can about the game. As of now I only do a couple drills, because, although I'm very dedicated to learning, the drills don't give me great satisfaction. My favorite game right now is bowlliards and then followed by 7 up (a game posted here on the forum.) I enjoy these because they are fun and I can score myself. I like the idea of being able to see a progression in my play through the use of scoring. If I'm getting (x) score today and double that score in a few months I can see I'm getting better. That's the reason I enjoy these games and not so much the drills. With that said though, I do realize that drills are where it's at. so if I can read your material on making drills fun, I believe I can make my practice sessions mostly drill oriented and hopefully see some great results.

Also, I was born in Albuquerque, if that helps your decision. If not, I'll just buy the book. haha.

Friendly bump

Did I mention that Jeremiah is a recognised PBIA instructor and a founding member of the Albuquerque billiard club and a cool guy?

I would be happy to review as well. I've played 20+ years and also I have reviewed numerous books on information security before they hit the shelves.

I've been playing for 50 years but didn't take a lesson until I hooked up with Scott Lee about 10 years ago.

Yes, I will read the entire book and provide a critique in general as well as in specific areas if I feel that's needed. (Don't expect me to edit the entire thing; I'm not crazy!)

I've published some articles about one of my other passions, woodworking, and write a blog. (Glad to provide a link if you'd like to read some.) I know what good writing looks like, even if I don't like the subject.
