I read the Bill Bostons book briefly and it seemed pretty useless for regular O8 SNG and tournament player. No use for advanced players.
There are lot of hand rankings, which might be interesting, but the method to produce them seemed badly flaved
. If I understood method correctly, every hand was supposed to see the flop and from there forward computer simulated the rest of the play, which gave positive or negative ev for a hand, like +8$ or -4$. Well, it seemed ridiculous to call the flop with hands like wih three aces or with dry pair of aces. And then the aces got negative ev value.
