Item description for The Pool Room by Sid Ragland...
The Pool Room delves, up close and personal, into the sometimes-sordid world of high-stakes billiards (pool). You will be introduced to some very unique characters that frequent a pool establishment that has been in operation for over thirty years in the same location. This story has a surprise ending where two anomalies occur that will capture your imagination. You will experience the flavor, sights and sounds of the real world of a sub-culture that many do not know exists. If you have ever played pool for money then you will easily relate to this story.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Pool Room?
Pool Room characters Aug 14, 2004
The Pool Room really seems to enlighten it readers about many of the small insignificant inner-personal exchanges that take place between pool room regulars. It also graphically shows how big money pool matches come about. I especially liked the basic premis of the story line (excellance/perfection). I don't think I have ever seen that premis in any book I've ever read before. Being a tournament pool player myself, I really enjoyed this book and plan to recommend it to all of my pool playing friends.
