The book, the e-book or the newsletters? Luckily I've got both the book and the newsletter.

i use E books for work a lot but i prefer real paper so i can highilight, mark pages and keep it by the table for a quick ref.

i get his news letters but i personaly do not get much out of them. i have been considering stopping the services but have not yet since it is easy to delete and i keep hoping for the little gem to show up.

Even though I'm a tech guy I don't like e-books. I want real books! Books that I can touch, scribble on and smell! I specially like the smell of aged books.

personally...i feel the monk writes the best books on pool, especially on the mental aspect...makes you feel the urge to play your best (and like a champion) after reading it. :wink:

I like the paper version better. Don't mind paying extra as it would cost more to print it out anyway. A lot of the time when I am reading a good book on pool and come across something that I want to learn it's nice to have a book to take to the table and practice the technique.

I like the paper version too. I usually don't have time to read books except when I'm in the bathroom so... :D Anyone interested in used pool books? :roll:

Im the same way. I like bieng able to take the book to the table. It allows you to get a better visual. And shots are set up exactly how they are tought to you.

i do the same, i take the book to the table and work on the shots. very important for monk book i have since he does not give adequit detail on how to stroke etc. the only way to tell is to guess by description then see the results.

The good thing about the ebook format is that you can print the page you're working on and lay it flat on the table.

I think the monk does 90% rambling, 5% plugging his other products, and 5% actually teaching. I don't really like the way his writings come across.
