Are there many HCs and APs that you know (or know of?) who feel that The Book should never have been published?
And/or that some (or much?) of the material was not the author's to make public? What is the climate tone among "real" pros? zg

So naturally, it is a secret.

No, I heard it from the ploppiest ploppy so it must be true!

Holy Toledo! I was expecting (maybe) one PM, but got messages from 4 members regarding how "real pros" (ExhibitCAA's term) "really feel" about the author and his release of (some) information that was 'collectively-owned', and how the casinos benefited the most by the two releases.

I recall a time after the first release when 90% of the copies were being bought by casino agents. zg
