    I haven't seen it anywhere, the print form is out of print unfortunately.

    It may be in a library somewhere.

    What would people buy out of these two? Just One Frame for 20 or Frank Callen's Snooker Clinic for 38?

    When I started playing snooker at around 14-15 my grandad gave me an old book of his, it was from Ray Reardon.

    It was just a paperback and it fell apart from carrying it around with me

    If I remember correctly it had all the information in it that one needs to be a good player. Though you can't get better than a trainer for the basics of getting you sorted out right.

    Anyway at the time, I got up from teen breaks to my best break up till now 86 at the age of twenty.
    which I probably will never top, I stopped playing for 13 years, with me moving to Germany. Then started again, got breaks into the fifties then smashed my motorbike up, with it my right hip.

    Scince then I'm having some real difficulties with the game.

    Can't seem to find my old stance anymore, maybe i've got something blocking in my hip 7 screws and a plate?

    Anyway it was/is a really good book.
