New BOOK! - This new book from Bob Henning is the definite work on safety play. As you may know, the ability to play strong safeties is more important today than ever. So many players can kick and jump well, that sloppy, loose safeties no longer guarantee a return trip to the table. The only way to counter this trend is to know more safeties and be able to perform them at a higher level.
One of the important things to know about safeties is that they are usually quite sensitive to small changes in hit, speed and english. Even more important, they are often very sensitive to the exact positions of the balls relative to each other and to the cushions. A safety may be perfect in one configuration, yet totally off if any ball is moved as little as an inch. You will have mastered a safety when you can recognize the general layout, know the strategic aspects of the shot, and can confidently execute it in a match. Learning the "TOP 100 Pro Safeties" presented in this book, will help you gain that mastery.
These are the TOP 100 safeties used by TOP professionals
today. Each safety is depicted in a GAME situation! Each safety is
completely explained, named and categorized! Secrets are revealed! Easy to
use format! Fits most cue case pockets! Become a defense monster! Win from
tough positions! Never leave an easy table again! $34.95 (PSF)

George Fels - Billiards Digest reviewer says:
"About the highest praise you can offer a pool instructional book is that it makes you feel like playing. Henning, one of America’s better-known teachers (his first effort, “The Pro Book,” is in its sixth printing, and has been translated into two languages), has created a piece wherein any given page can do that. Of his book’s 338 pages, Henning devotes the first 109 to an advanced look at fundamentals, and while pool’s basics have been covered and covered and covered elsewhere, you’ll appreciate his insights into them; almost all of them are new. (He even has an entire chapter on staying down.) My favorite sections of “The Advanced Pro Book,” however, are sections 4 and 5, which deal almost exclusively with the mental game. How many players have gone from intermediate to advanced when some savvy teacher told them, “Let your stroke out”? Are you familiar with that phrase? Henning offers an entire chapter on it. His four pages on focus are sheer genius. Henning's diagrammed shots are also superb, including the advice he offers within them. “The Advanced Pro Book” is highly, highly recommended."
