The book would have nothing to do with that of course, so it's a cheap argument.

If you believe a world beater like Shredder will become an easy push-over just
because it has an average pgn-builded book, and that Movei can become a world
beater by using Shredders book, then surely you must have lost some marbles.

I bet you Shredder could have won CCT7 playing 1.h3 or 1...h6 in _every_ game.
