Poolology - Mastering the Art of Aiming By Brian Crist
eBook (ePub): $9.99
***** eBook edition ***** Poolology is a breakthrough aiming system for pool players. I was once asked, "How do you aim?", and I couldn't answer. I said I didn't know, and I'm sure the... More > player that asked me that thought I was holding out on him, keeping some great secret to myself. But it was true - other than to call it instinct, I had no idea how to aim. I'd never been taught how to aim. I just shoot balls into the pocket. This question, "How do you aim?", is what prompted me to write Poolology. After experimenting with various aiming systems, I learned that most aiming systems don't work for most people. That explains why so many pool players struggle to be consistent shot makers. I wanted to fix that. I wanted to find a system that could teach players how to aim any shot on the table, how to develop a feel for pocketing balls. No such system existed, until now. It's called Poolology!< Less
