Introduction:
 
We rarely see life-changing moments when they occur. It is only later that we can look back upon them and know that this or that is what caused our lives to take the turns toward ill or good. When Danny Diliberto set out from Buffalo on his first road trip all those years ago, he had no way of knowing that his life had been permanently altered. But that first trip to the Hustler's Jamboree would become the sextant for the remainder of his life.

This collection of road stories from the vibrant memory of Mr. Diliberto are a great glimpse into the lifestyle of those who choose to be modern-day Ronins; lone-wolf warriors with no master save themselves. There are highs beyond belief and lows that no one should suffer. From facing prison because of a roommate who pilfered motel towels to winning hundreds of thousands of dollars on a single gamble, this is a life story that is anything but boring.

Diliberto excelled in four sports, all of which begin with the letter 'B.' He has been a baseball player, a bowler, a boxer and a billiard player. Boxing was his first love, but one that did not return his favors. An excellent puncher, his own hands could not stand the power of his blows.

It was billiards that gave him greatest fame and the life described herein. Any devotee of the game will find this collection a fascinating look into the immediate past of the game. From Las Vegas to Hollywood to the smallest towns on the most distant highways, this is the life of the roadman. Agambler's tale told in his own words. Enjoy.

Very entertaining

Well written book about the late great Cornbread Red. I got into this book so good that I read it in only two sessions. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys reading about the legends of pool.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY

"While I haven't picked up the cue yet, I just wanted to pass on a great compliment to you and your staff. The fast response in both phone and email was great. If the new cue performs half as good as you guys do, it will win. All in all, great job, and I look forward to sending business your way. Thanks again! Shepard Myers "
