World Champion Pool Player Ray "Cool Cat" Martin shares his secrets for playing winner's pool in this classic book, now with a new introduction by the author. Written with co-author Rosser Reeves three decades ago, The 99 Critical Shots in Pool remains one of the most authoritative guides to the game ever written. Over 200 illustrations show the proper form, technique, and approach to shots such as: 


The Center Ball Cheat-the-Pocket
The Hook Shot
The Seven Ball Stop Shot
The Jump Shot
The Frozen Kiss Shot
The Nudge Shot
The Side Pocket By-Pass Shot

Ray Martin, a Billiards Congress of America Hall of Fame inductee, is one of only seven players in the twentieth century to win three or more world 14.1 titles. He co-wrote this book with Rosser Reeves in 1976.

Discusses many many scenarios that may seem unlikely to encounter unless you play a LOT. That said, the explanations for these shots can be understood and then one can extend the knowledge to any scenario. Great book!

A MUST read for all.
By Dan from Centreville, VA on December 10, 2012
Some of the shots seem easy, but this book breaks down exactly how to apply english, follow, and draw. It also explains throw, and goes into many scenarios, including straight pool (14.1) breaks. This book is a huge help for my game.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

The 99 Critical Shots in Pool Book by Ray Martin
By Weed from PA on October 4, 2012
This is the one book that every pool player should have as a foundation for playing and teaching the game. The newer edition takes nothing away from the 1977 original except the younger looking pictures of a phenomenal player. A book can be placed on the playing table while learning or teaching the shots and concepts shown. Excellent presentation and illustrations. The best proven first book for giving newbies a chance to become very good players in a short period of time. Many seasoned players do not know many of the shots presented. An enjoyable way to learn.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great Book for beginnner to professional
By Nicholas from , on January 26, 2012
This book describes 99 shots in a very easy way, nice diagrams for every shot and sometimes more than one way to show you the shot. I recommend this book highly, it taught me a lot about my game and I instantly was finding out what I was doing wrong whether it was the wrong english or a problem with banking. I say its worth a lot more than 13$

I would recommend this item to a friend.

A must for the serious player

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Good book
By Bob from Port Huron, MI on December 5, 2010
This is the first book on pool I have ever purchased. It contains a lot of great information for the beginner to intermediate player and teaches you what the cue ball is going to do to set up for your next shop, carom shots, bank shots and many others. As an advanced player I think I might do better with an instructor.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
