I think that it is unfair to use books that require the CB-GUI
If I understand correctly it means that the GUI choose the book moves and not
the engine so the author is using something external program to help him to
select moves.

I think that the engine needs to choose all the moves(otherwise the playing
thing is not original work of the author and the authors of the chessbase gui
should be mentioned as part of the team).
