Reader's note

This wonderful book is as practical as it is beautiful! It is perhaps, best summed up by the author himself as he states in his introduction - The trite saying that billiards cannot be learned from books simply amounts to an assertion that it is impossible to train the hand and the eye without actual practice. I may say at once that this book does not claim to teach billiards in the sense of imparting skill to the hand and eye. What I do claim for the book is that it is eminently practical, and that it places within the reach of anyone who has mastered the art of holding the cue and striking a a ball, and who is willing to train his hand and eye by working out the instructions over and over again on a billiard table, the means of acquiring a billiard education which will enable him to play a more than average amateur game. There is no royal road to proficiency at billiards. The man who spends many pounds in lessons will never make a player unless he takes a great deal of practice. - wise words from the master himself!
