American writer and lecturer Dale Carnegie once said, "Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." Author Lance Tomlinson is utterly convinced that never giving up was the key to what he has now and so he wrote his book "LT’s School of Pool" to inspire others who want to play their best game of pool.

A games and sports enthusiast, Lance Tomlinson writes a how-to-guide for both novice and regular players of pool. With personal accounts of his plays, techniques and playing styles he uses, Tomlinson’s book is the appropriate handy guide for players who want to know the basic ways of playing, and for players who want to hone or improve their craft.

With stress on how to shoot the ball, how to practice and how to stabilize the strokes when shooting, he wants readers to know that every game they play should never be taken for granted. The author says in his book:

"Keep your thought until you have won the game; stay focused, stay calm. Never second-guess yourself, ever. Walk around the table and pull your thoughts back; there are no shots too hard for you to make. Don’t take your game for granted; practice, challenge."

The author considered the writing of his book as a challenge, to boost his morale and prove to himself that he can intelligently explain how he has achieved the top-dog position in his league. He had to write his book to get back to his own game and to get to the level of play he has now (and he once had). He strongly believes that his feat on the pool table and with the pen can be an inspiration to readers. He sends out a dare to readers to do their best with every game they play; to believe that winning will never be impossible.

"LT’s School of Pool" is not just a pool game guide but a work that aims to help and to inspire all pool aficionados to be better and to be winners in life as well. This book is a pool players’ bible of sorts and a just celebration of the game they love.

This book will be featured at the 2014 Beijing Book Fair in Beijing, China, on August 27 – 31, 2014.
