Ralph Eckert: "The last freedom: reflections of a master student", paperback with 238 pages. A book not only for billiard players! General reflections about winning and losing, about the anger and the strength of the smile, about dealing with difficulties, about fun in first and second class, about justice and reality, about training and matches, about strengths and weaknesses, about ultimate freedom and about fame without money. And these are just a few of the topics that Ralph Eckert addresses in 27 chapters. Ralph Eckert's personal "Karate Kid Story" began in 1982. The 17-year-old Ralph struggled with the balls for the first time when a bet was thriving in the background. When a guest said that this boy had no talent and that it would probably be nothing, Mr. Kim, the older Chinese billiard cafe owner, bet against it and decided to make him a top player anyway. The story took its course .... The former Bundesliga player was, among other things, trick kick world champion in 2004 and is known worldwide today as an international coach, author and top player.
