Do you know the name of the first person to say, " I feel like I am behind the eight ball again.?" No, well neither do I, but now that I have your attention, I would like to tell you about a book writen by George Fels. The title of the book is "Advanced Pool: Techniques and Strategies for Mastering The Game." This book dealt not only with the physical elements of the game, it also stressed the importance of the mental aspects of the game as well. Most of the books writen about pool point out the obvious aspects of the game such as the use of English to make the cue ball move to a favorable position for the next shot. Getting the best position to make the next ball should ultimately lead to winning the game. Indeed position play is very important in the game of pool. Mr. Fel's book points out that getting position is as much a mental process as a physical process. I urge you to read this book. It is writen in a style which is easy to understand. It also contains many graphics to illustrate the situtation being discussed. The next time you are behind the eight ball, just remember you are not the first person to be in that spot, and you will not be the last. If you read this book and apply the advice given in it's pages you will surely be playing at the top of your game.
