Capelle's Practicing Pool: Take Your Game To Th...

This is really a question (as most always) more than comment and pertains more or less to the TWO previous blog entries.Recently, I got Lee Brett's *Secret Art* and your PSR discussion makes me think of his "in" or "out" of the box approach. Have you read it, and does it add anything substantive that comes to mind relative to the PSR(s) you might favor?Also, serendipitously I have Capelle's *Practicing Pool* and *Play Your Best Straight Pool.* But (and this matters to me) I can't figure out if *Play Your Best 8-Ball* (which seems to have been published or updated 2004) is then "necessary" ... beings 8-Ball and Straight Pool are the games "I know" and especially 8-Ball is the game I've played 95% of the time. I like straight pool to be sure, and I THINK 9-Ball will be a game I'll be playing quite a bit (soon), but it's almost impossible to really tell how much overlap there is between these books ... maybe he's figured out a ploy (nothing snide there) to max out sales? If *Play Your Best 8-Ball* has a bunch of stuff NOT in *Play Your Best Straight Pool* then I'm ready/willing/able to get a copy, I think, but then I see this "Special 10th Anniversary Ed" of *Play Your Best Pool* where Mr. Capelle says "not one page has been left untouched" (in terms of re-edit I take it) but the diagrams are still B&W apparently. Whew. It'd be nice to know - when a book seems to come highly recommended - which Ed (and maybe even which title) really contains what. Of course that'd require (anyone recommending) the luxury of being able to look at multiple Eds. ... I'm probably willing to check into which Eds are available in the public library system (which is impressive in my city) if it'd be of any help.

When you master the fundamentals, you will lay the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment of pool. I urge newer players to take the necessary time to learn these fundamentals thoroughly. Make them a part of your game. Don't rush the process. Be sure that you feel comfortable with your grip, bridge, stance, and stroke before leaving this chapter. Learn the fundamentals thoroughly. Practice them diligently. And check them regularly throughout your career. Your game will benefit accordingly.
