- In Pursuit Of Excellence. This latest edition of Dale F. Brandt's book presents the game of pool as a body and mind experience that must be kept in sync. Physical concepts are presented in detail, but the heart of the book focuses on the intellectual and emotional elements that need to be incorporated in a player's development to achieve maximum performance. Seeing similarities with martial arts training, the author stresses mental discipline, focus and positive life-style choices. There is also a very comprehensive and insightful glossary.
