This book is a comprehensive and beginner-friendly guide to billiards. Written in clear language and illustrated with simple diagrams, this handbook is ideal for the beginner, and will also be of utility to more experienced players looking to hone their skills. From holding the cue to calculating complicated shots, “Scientific Billiards” covers it all, and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Contents include: “Billiard Games”, “The Cue”, “The Stance”, “The Bridge”, “Making the Shot”, “English, Draw, and Follow”, “Massé Shots”, “Position Play”, “Rail Nurses”, “Balkline vs. Three-Cushion”, “The Three-Cushion Shot”, “Diamond System”, “Avoiding Kisses”, “Safety Play”, “Art of Practising”, “In Conclusion”, “Billiard Talk”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on snooker, pool, and billiards.
