We just got a new pool table in the house a couple weeks ago, and I would
like to improve my play by fully understanding how to use spin, strategy,
etc.  I think the video would be the easiest way to learn this
stuff.

What is the best video to check out?

I think that a really good video to buy would be the Robert Byrne
Standard Video of Pool and Billiards, volume 1 and maybe 2 later.

However, I disagree that a video is the BEST way to learn about that
stuff. I think that you should buy a great book, such as Play your
best pool, by Phil Capelle, which I haven't personally checked out
yet, but have heard works wonders. Another good one is by Byrne; the
Standard BOOK of Pool and Billiards, and finally I think you should
check out Steve Mizerak's book (don't recall the title), that he wrote
in 1990-something.

As you start to understand all the basics of the game, and begin
running balls, you should definitely buy ADVANCED POOL by George Fels
(or Mastering Pool by George Fels--alot alike). This is probably the
best book on the game ever written, and I think that it's up there w/
the Bible.

Good Luck.

I'm in the 3rd Chapter of Phil Capelle's book "Play Your Best Pool". So
far I think it's even better than "Advanced..."
