View Full Version : Mark Stellinga's New Book



03-28-2003, 12:11 PM
Mark Stellinga has a new book out as of January 2003, "Pool & Billiard Collectibles: A Billiard Accessories and Collectibles Price Guide". Has anyone seen a copy of this book, and if so what did you think about the content? If it's purely a price guide, I will go another direction.

I really enjoy reading about the history of the game and the equipment. Any other suggestions of books along these lines?

Thanks,
Scott

If this is your thing, buy it. I can tell you that it wasn't my thing, but it was nice. Besides, if I bought it, the shelf would break. That Billiards Encyclopedia is damned heavy (but worth it).
