I am about to buy this book, just wondering what it's like ?
I've not read of his other but I am getting 'Mind for the game' at the same time...

I have the book. It is a good book once you figure out what diagram he is referring to. Sometimes you have to read 2 or 3 pages past the diagram to understand what he is writing about and how you are supposed to practice the shots.

Are the diagrams at least marked with reference numbers ?

I'll go ahead and buyit anyway, people always tell me his books are first class, I'll defer to reputation.

Thanks Tau.

So has that book been published yet? It doesn't look like it from his web site.

The copy I have here in front of me seems to indicate it's been published :)
I am sure his webpage is just a bit behind the times.

So far I haven't got much value from it, I tried to read it cover to cover, like you would with his other books, but I found the pace very very slow. He actually tells you to skip a chunk of it if you're not a beginner, so thats what I am going to do.

As always he has a good perspective on how to do things and it all seems like good stuff, I just haven't made time to really get the best out of it yet.
I could probably scan a couple of pages (without annoying anyone legally too much) so you can get an idea of whats in it.

I really need to get more into it. :?

Yeah, I looked at the preview pages that he put on his web site. Seems decent, there's one diagram that is confusing. I recently bought his "Play Your Best Pool" which is very good.
