100 of the Best Billiard Players of All Time Enjoyed this book? Please leave us a positive rating so that we can produce more 100 great topics. You may also enjoy the following books:

This book and our other books are a collection of 100ofthe that is produced for your entertainment. We write on the topics that we believe will appeal to the masses for entertainment and reference purposes. Each topic goes through a thorough selection process broken down into 4 main steps: The first step is to find out what is a hot topic. We have a research group that finds statistics on topics that interest people. They bring back to us data that we individually go through and based on the volume of interest we select a few topics that we want to write on. Once we have a more concise list of topics we do further micro analysis to pin point a more specific topic. Then we check other book titles and title our book accordingly and to appeal to everyone. To come up with a production of 100ofthe for any topic takes a lot of time. We spend most of our time trying to find unique and interesting answers to what should

be included into the 100ofthe. Usually we come up with way over 100 (thousands usually) to 100ofthe and then again we need to go through the process of elimination. So we sit at a round table and start to discuss each and every answer. At some instances since each person has his or her opinion it make take an entire day to make a decision of the final selections that will actually go into the book. Once the final answer is compiled we sometimes rank the listing in an order of significance. So meaning the number one answer within 100ofthe is the top rank. But that is not the case for all books that we write for 100ofthe. Much time and more discussion are needed to rank the actual answers for each and every book. Its very difficult to agree since every person has their own individual opinion on each and every answer and no one person can really come to the consensus on each and every ranking, so come up with the best consensus possible. Second step is to work with our creative department where they create the cover of the book. This is one of the most important departments in our company. The reason is very simple; because the covers need to be unique and appeal to all people interested in the topic. We sit down with a designer to make sure that we convey the message to the reader that this is the book you want to buy not only because of the cover but the contents as well. The cover needs to display the visual and the written aspect of the book. For example a book on 100 of the Greatest Basketball Players of All Time, needs to convey that the book is both interesting to read with a great title and a cover that provides an imaginative point of view to the potential reader. We take the time to find the best images for the cover by going through hundreds of images. We then narrow down the images to around 8-10 for final review. Our

head designer pitches to us the images they feel are the most relevant and conveys the message to the interested individual to make the purchase. Then we sit down and either agrees to go with the designers assessment or select out own preference for the image. Since the image is one of the most important aspects of the book we take our time. Once the title and image are selected our designer creates it. Next step is to put all of the pieces together and start uploading the book to be available in many venues. This process is handled by our operations department where they upload covers, body, and met data of the book. It takes a while to upload books because of the distribution venues that they are available on. Each portal requires a set of rules that we must follow. For example some are formatting, types of docs that are allowed, and the image size. Each book needs to be saved in many different types of format. Some need to be saved in .doc or .pdf format. Some venues only allow for us to upload book covers with .jpeg and .gif. Others only allow .pdf formats. That is the timeframe between creating a single book can take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month. In addition to the actual creation of the book the individual companies take a while to verify the content thoroughly before actually publishing it for sale. There are certain restrictions that they impose. So the actual time before the book becomes available is really around 2 months. Marketing a book takes a lot of resources and time. There are many ways to market the book after it is published. Telling friends and family is the most obvious one along with Facebook, twitter and other social media websites. But to actually acquire audiences that are specifically looking to buy

the book you are selling, it takes more time and money. We can also be found on our own website called where new and old clients can find all of our tittles for sale. They will also be able to sign up and receive updates on each and every title that comes out for sale. Each book that has been written will be featured on 100ofthe including the portals where the user can purchase the item. In Conclusion we hope each and every reader of our books becomes a fan and supports us in our venture. In the near future we will ask for each and everyones opinion of the topics they want for us to cover and even suggest what you feel should be included and excluded. Our goal is to entertain everyone from young to old. As other successful companies we will continue to improve our answers to 100ofthe. The authors of the books came up with the idea for 100ofthe to fill the demand that was lacking in the book market. Many readers are interested in the choices and variations to answer from Sports to Technology. How many different types of computers are there? What are the best computers I should buy? What are the top basketball players that ever played? All of these questions were posed by the authors of 100ofthe. So they thought it was a good idea to find out the answers and at the same time share with curious people of all ages and nations. Although the books are currently in the English language we feel that in the future as the popularity of the books increase we will want to have them translated into many different languages. The world is full of curiosity and wonder about all topics that we feel the masses will enjoy. That is why the authors are sharing with you this book and others. We would encourage you to tell your friends and

family about these books if you have enjoyed them and want to share the topic. Not every person will like the topic you have read on but I'm sure they will find a range of topics they will enjoy.

Thank you for purchasing this book 100ofthe signing off!
