There’s been a few new snooker books released recently and there’s more on the way!

It’s nice to see that the various aspects of snooker are being written about and these three books illustrate that.

Ronnie O’Sullivan – Unbreakable

As at 1 July this is on sale at Amazon with a massive 50% discount!

The latest Ronnie O’Sullivan book, Unbreakable, is not just an update on his life story, but more of an insight into the mindset of the world’s greatest snooker player.

My thoughts: I am going to have to get this at this price!


Luke G Williams – The Natural: The Story of Patsy Houlihan, the Greatest Snooker Player You Never Saw

This is the story of South Londoner Patsy Houlihan who it is said “was one of the top amateurs of the 1950s and 60s as well as the greatest hustler of all time.”

My thoughts: I’ve got a copy and am just about to start reading it. I don’t get a lot of reading time but I will post my review eventually.


Brendan Cooper – Deep Pockets: Snooker and the Meaning of Life

This is a very different snooker book.

“Deep Pockets is a study of this uncharted territory – a love letter to snooker, and an impassioned journey into its soul. Because snooker, in fact, is more than a game. It is a belief set; a way of seeing; an entire philosophical system. In chapters that cover everything from time, truth, loss, luck and more, Deep Pockets explores how snooker can help us to trace the meaning of life itself.”

My thoughts: This is a definite on my ‘must buy’ list!


Note: All these books, and more, are available on Amazon via the SnookerHub Shop along with other snooker stuff. SnookerHub does earn a small commission from Amazon but there is no extra cost to you by buying through our shop.
