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."
