Doug's game was in a dreadful state when we got together in February 1988.
Doug had never read a book about snooker, never had a day's coaching in his life, and I knew as soon as he picked up his cue and practised with me that a lot of hard work had to be done if he was to become successful again.
For instance, Doug's idea of putting side on the cue ball was to hit across it either to the left or the right.

The first Welsh triumph in the tournament, however, was way back in 1978 courtesy of Doug Mountjoy, who had also reached the final of the inaugural tournament 12 months earlier, losing to Irishman Patsy Fagan in Blackpool.
Mountjoy beat all the odds to win it again ten years later and in between times, former world champion Terry Griffiths - defeated in the 1979 final by Salford's John Virgo - became the second UK champion to hail from the Valleys when he beat Ireland's Alex `Hurricane' Higgins in the memorable 1982 UK final.
Mountjoy returned to end Davis' reign in 1988, just before Scotsman Hendry took his vice-like grip on the competition with five triumphs in eight years and eight final appearances in ten years.

With the likes of Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry, Terry Griffiths, Doug Mountjoy and Allison Fisher as previous students, Callan's coaching credentials are second to none, but can he transfer this knowledge effectively to a book?
Using such familiar 'names' allows a faster acceptance of what is being discussed and gives the reader a greater confidence in Callan's ideas by pointing out the similarities between his ideas and these top players' techniques.
Probably the most uplifting part of this book is the case study of Callan's involvement with Doug Mountjoy.

In the final you saw the old heads going at it with more tactical play and a lot of respect for each other but with Steve (on form) Skinner beating 5 Welsh internationals on his way to the final there was no way he was going to lose and finally beat Ken Leeson 4-1.
