Welcome to all Pool & Billiards Players

Howdy folks –

First of all, thanks for coming by to check out my blogs – there’s a LOT of posts. That said – allow me to be straight up with you about learning.

Right now, you are like millions of others – tips (like my blogs) are good – but basically, your standard style of study is to learn from personal experience. Your acceptable status quo is to enjoy the joy of winning (once in a while), and suffer the humiliation of losses (far too often).

Here’s a reminder about a fact of life – it’s stupid  for anyone to think learning from mistakes is quick and easy. You can do it – but it is VERY painful.  Take steps to save yourself from most of that future pain and enjoy more episodes of joyful happiness.

Each book and video is a summation of 50 years of playing stupid, then figuring out how to stop. These are (for you) cheap concentrated packages that contain decades of personally suffered bad experiences – and lessons learned. They all have a single purpose – to make you the Intelligent Shooter.

I urge you to try out my PDF books – they work on all smart devices. That means you can study the information anytime, anyplace. And for the armchair researcher – get the printed book on Amazon (or other online book stores).

Psst – I provide author support (as long as I’m still alive). As you study one of my books, I will answer any questions about the material.
