It seems from your posts that you have a ways to go in your poker journey. No offense, we all do. But here are some points from your posts that contradicted itself or showed that you didn't fully comprehend what you were criticizing.
His theory (if I remember properly) of something like "If you play your hands like you can openly read your opponents' hands then you win, and vice versa..." is kind of difficult to understand.
If this is all you got from reading it seriously looks like you spot read. What he is talking is the Fundamental Therom of Poker and he goes into great detail explaining what he means by that and it takes a thorough reading of the book to make sense of the whole thing since the explanation comes full circle by the end.
2. I prefer other books because they are fun to read and easier to grasp. Books like S/S (can't wait for SS2) got me hooked right away. And honestly, I am not a pro and I play online just for fun (but I do manage to make profit, and I have a day time job), I don't have that much time to read on an relatively boring book (ok, lazy excuses, got work to do, family to run...)
No offense but the old saying of "If it was that easy, everyone would do it" comes in to play. You can't become a professional or even a consistent winner without putting in the time and effort.
4. Some experiences very important like patience, discipline, observing your opponents, changing gears, courage to bluff, choosing the right time , right people, and right position to bluff, avoiding trap, setting trap, etc are something you can't read from a book. If you don't have the talent to sort things out on your own, you will never be able to be a fine poker player or a successful person.
Books can't teach you this per se, but they do make the beginner aware that you should look out and think about these things. TOP does this very well. Then you end point 4 by saying "If you don't have the talent to sort>>>>(see above) and then state in point 5 that you want Daniel to show you what to look for. That just proves your own point that you at the moment are not a "fine poker player or a successful person."Maybe I misread what you were getting at, but your posts seemed muddled, uninformed and contradictory.
