WOW,

Talk about a stickup. Well, the book is very good but I'd rather have a friend give me a copy of theirs. Not like it's 100 pages or anything. I do recommend it though. It really is a good thing to know if you play competitive pool.

IMHO,

C.C.

Sorry CC,

But when you have a friend that will lend you a copy, okay.

Personally, I wouldn't part with my copies for all the tea in China. But you're welcome to come over to my house to read them.

Barbara~~~what you read in my house, stays here... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

EDIT: Joe worked long and hard on this book and spent countless hours in the pool room to research this subject. He is considered an expert in this area and sold this book for a mere $10 when it was in print and made practically no money on the deal with the publisher. I personally know Joe Tucker and he posts here from time to time, and I highly recommend all of his books for everyone. Ceebee will be coming out with a book along with his break rack that will include the whole of Joe Tucker's "Racking Secrets" book.

Barbara~~~Happy V-Day to Joe and Becks and the two boys... /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Way too much money. Just like both Eddie Robbins books I have, way over priced.

Hi Barbara,

My friend Nick let me read his copy and I sent it back after I was done reading it. I'm not just talking reading it either. I worked with it for 2 weeks and he was very kind to send it to me as a loaner. I wouldn't keep it.

Regards,

C.C.~~thanks again dawg.

Rod, Eddie gave me his two books and his tape of Willie Hoppe and Ralph Greenleaf for giving him valuable info on my mentor Joe Canton. Joe had two large scrapbooks that ended up in his family's posession. In his day pool was going strong and writeups and pictures were numerious.####

Joe Tuckers NEW &amp; IMPROVED "Secrets of the Rack" chapters in my new book titled, "The GREAT Break Shot" will obsolete that book on ebay.

The new book is 8.5 x 11 format &amp; is 208 pages in length.

Joe Tucker has put a great deal of time in detailing these 2 chapters (more pages than the original book) so that you the player can learn a great deal, right from the start.

The book will be well worth you time and money $25. The book will be released in about 15 days.... cb
