WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
After working with Nic during his ranking tournament winning streak in 2013, Ding Junhui said:
"Nic's coaching and knowledge on psychology, technique and shot making helped my game and I learned a lot. Who knows - with all the help from this book you might become good enough to turn professional yourself one day..."
Nic, alongside Steve Davis OBE, was a member of the World Snooker Coaching Team from 2010-2012, certifying coaches at levels 1, 2 and 3.
"You won't find a better set of snooker information anywhere. I would defy ANYBODY'S game not to improve if you stick to Nic's methods - and this will stay with you for life. I know this because Nic and I see the game the same way, and both have an appreciation for the finer points of the game."
Ronnie O'Sullivan, Five Time World Snooker Champion
Attended Nic's intensive level 3 Master Coach Programme before launching his own successful coaching career.
"Even although I was a professional snooker player myself I learned great ways and techniques in explaining and demonstrating certain aspects of the game.Nic is a great guy and also knows everything about the game of snooker. You can see that he has studied the game for years and years to get to where he is now in the coaching world."
Chris Small, 2003 LG Cup Champion
'Without Nic Barrow's advice on nutrition, I would not have won the 2007 Asian Billiards Championship.
His advice helped me recover from feeling awful to fine within 24 hours, which gave me the energy to go all the way in the event.'
Peter Gilchrist, World Champion & World Number 1 Billiards Player
'A couple of simple psychological tips from Nic made it much easier than it otherwise would have been to cross the 1,000 break barrier in Hamilton, New Zealand during my 1,346 break in 2007'
Peter Gilchrist, World Record Holder - English Billiards Competitive Break 1346.
"Nic Barrow has more clues than Sherlock Holmes.I would not have won the 2009 IBSF World Amateur Championships without Nic Barrow being here with me during the event. He has a massive knowledge of the game, a great ability to spot a players faults, and the keys to solve them. I also found him to be a calming influence who always says the right thing at the right time."
Alfie Burden, 2009 IBSF World Champion
"The safety practice routines Nic Barrow helped me with were a major factor in winning my IBSF World Amateur title in 2012.
Nic's knowledge and experience in dealing with pressure was also vital in being able to win the final of my world title 10-9 on the black"
Hossein Vofei, Youngest ever IBSF World Men's Amateur Champion (relieving Jimmy White of the record he set at the age of 18).
"The IBSF Master Coach training was invaluable in helping me guide Hossein Vofei through the toughest pressure points and emergency situations in his IBSF World Amateur title win in India in 2011. Without these player management skills we would not have come away with the World title."
Kamran Shahla, Head Coach & Manager - Iranian National Team.
"Nic Barrow's knowledge on psychology and holding concentration helped me through my IBSF World Amateur final in Egypt, 2002."
Steve Mifsud, Australia - IBSF World Amateur Champion 2002
"Nic Barrow is a monster coach - because he is masterful in not just one skill but all... psychology, technique, strategy, practice, coaching toys, and how to talk to players. In 2 minutes, Nic spotted a mistake that was holding me back for a year... and my game immediately got back to its best."
Igor Figueiredo, Brazil's number one ranked player since 1995
IBSF World Amateur Finalist 2009
"Within one day of some pressure play ideas Nic gave me during the 2006 IBSF World Amateur Championships, I made the only 147 break during the event - which was also my first maximum.These ideas helped me cross the finishing line of the 147 successfully - I could not have done it without you, Nic!"
Keith E Boon, Singapore
Some professional client names remain confidential...
Nic was based in Dubai as head coach of the UAE team from 1999-2006, winning 11 international tournaments in the process.
During 2013, Nic was Head Coach to the Myanmar Cue Sports teams, who won 11 medals in the South East Asian Games that year.

Why Listen To Me?
I have been a professional player since 1990 (and scored my first 147 maximum break back in 1991 when I was 21), but it took me many years to understand what worked on the practice table for all the areas of the game, and what did not work.
When I moved into my full time coaching career in 1998, it took me a few more years of trial and error to know what practices to give players of different standards, and HOW to approach those practices in a way that gave the maximum amount of improvement for your valuable minutes on the table.
I always remembered a sports world champion who was interviewed once about his practice - he said his attitude in his practice was to improve 1% per week... I certainly believe that anyone can improve their snooker game this amount with the correct practice.
So How Does All This Help YOU?...
Back in 2005 when I had been Head Snooker Coach of the UAE National Team for 6 years, I eventually felt I had enough experience and knowledge of all the various routines that players should practice (and equally importantly the routines that players should NOT practice).
I had been battling with my graphic designer for OVER 15 MONTHS to get a PERFECT computer rendition of the professional snooker table, and the correct relative dimensions of the balls and pocket angles.
Don't get me wrong - I paid him on an hourly basis because I know how obsessed I can get when it comes to demanding perfection but I knew that my current and future customers deserved no less!
When the template was ready, I went into my 'Snooker Practice Routine' files and pulled out ALL the notes in there. I organised them into the different logical sections of the game, designed and tested some new ones at the club, then began inputting them all into the computer.
After three long weeks I had over 150 snooker routines (in the 9 major areas of snooker shot making) designed and ready...
Since that time it has become my best selling coaching product.
I know if you decide to go ahead now and buy it that you will feel you have a lifetimes worth of snooker gems resting in your hands that you can come back to at any time - whether you are content with a once a week session at the club or if you reach world number one ranking!
