Exactly, it doesn't. He totally misrepresented or misunderstood the book. The only times he mentions illegal stuff is in a matter of fact way to let people know what some players do so they can be prepared.
He NEVER advocated cheating. He advocates being prepared, scouting, knowing when to use certain shots, which games mean the most in the course of a match, when to slow things down a tad within the rules to get some rest.....he teaches players to use their brains a little.
