- 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.

This book takes the reader into the life of pool's legendary money player. He was a champion, a hustler, a gambler, and sometimes a con man. He started as the son of a sharecropper and became a famous and feared money player. This book is action-packed, entertaining, and easy to read, with an inside look into the Johnson City tournaments and the world-famous Rack, where millions of dollars changed hands. Top players from around the country came to try, but few left with the cash. Cornbread Red ended up with a lot of it, only to blow much of it in future match ups. Like Red said, "I don't live by the month, by the week, or even by the day -- I live by the game."
