From the Inside Flap
English billiards has an extremely wide range of shots and without proper guidance at the outset, knowing where to start and how to construct a break may not be obvious. That's where this book comes in. With its structured, step-by-step approach and clear practice routines and targets, the game will start to unfold from the very first lesson.
There are five lessons to teach you billiards in a carefully thought out sequence, which, along with diagrams, photographs and a modern engaging format will help you to make rapid progress. Each lesson covers a group of related shots which can be put together to form a short pattern of play. These patterns form the foundation of break-building and by the end of this book you will have all the skills required to compete effectively in your local league or tournament.
