Willie's Game: An Autobiography

'“[Mosconi’s] vivid evocation of the sport’s furious competitiveness, the fantastic concentration required and the need to focus on one’s game rather than on one’s opponent makes it clear that pool is as demanding as boxing or pro football—even though the top-flight contestants play in tuxedos.” —Publishers Weekly   “A portrait of a man obsessed with gaining mastery of his chosen sport. Most appealing is [Mosconi’s] humility and decency.” —The New York Times   “Fascinating . . . [Mosconi’s] reminiscences of colorful legends of the game, like Ralph Greenleaf and the inimitable Minnesota Fats, are especially noteworthy.” —Library Journal'
