Jabari Edwards10.31.2012Engl 1101Annotated BibliographyMLA CitationBerg, Joseph. "The History of Pool Game."
. Articlesbase.com, 17 Sept.2010. Web. 27 Nov. 2012. <http://www.articlesbase.com/art-and-entertainment-articles/the-histo-ry-of-pool-games-3287113.html>.AnnotationJoseph Berg gives a short but accurate description of the history of pool, where it originated in Northern Europe and France. Berg gives a small amount of detail of how pool progressed fromthe 15th century to now, giving small details that Pool was played outdoors and maces and ivorycarved pool balls were used to play.EvaluationThis source is useful in terms of opening up with a slight history of where pool sports actuallycame from. It allows me to give a background in my essay before proceeding in the observationsinvolving my discourse community.MLA Citation #2Billing, Billie, and Megan Ratner.
Pool Pointers
. New York: Avon, 1992. Print.
Billie Billing and Megan Ratner create a guide of tips for the beginner learning how to play pool,ranging from the stances, the bridges, and ways to play offensively and defensively. This book mainly contains the “neccessary” steps for a beginner pool player to get better, and to providethough processes on how he or she should accomplish those goals.Key Quotes“Pool Players and musicians have a lot in common; both vocations demand time, dvotion to the point of obsession, and practice.”“Pool has long been shrouded in a cloak of mystery with skills passed down haphazardly. Myaim is to open the game up to everyone, to clue you in to what makes good shooting the bestform of entertainment I know.”EvaluationThis source is about as equally useful as Pool Cool, which allows me to draw points from both books and create a small section of discussing several points of pool, ranging from stances to bridges to tables to language.
MLA Citation #3
Rushin, Steve.
Pool Cool
. New York: Pocket, 1990. Print.Pool CoolAnnotationSteve Rushin gives sets of people looking to fit in with the pool community. He takes the ap- proach of placing the reader inside the poolroom doors, and covers many of the literacy terms
used in pool to effectively show the audience not only how to communicate with the experienced pool players, but to also play the favored games with ease.Key Quotes“It doesn’t matter if you lack the experience, or if you think the converse of ‘solids’ is ‘liquids.’So long as you have the urge and enthusiasm, you can delay your pursuit of the savage tan andstep in for a session or two.”EvaluationCompared to Pool Pointers, this book gives a more “urban” feel to pool, describing not onlysome of the methods to play pool, but how to talk the language of pool players, what the mostcommon games are being played at the pool table, and other pointers to help you “fit in” with the pool community.MLA Citation #4"History of the American Poolplayers Association (APA)."
