His actions per touch table and player elemental are so cool... I recreated both of them (had to brush up on some math) for current seasons. It singlehandedly revolutionized how I understood the game. I bought the book with one question in mind: 'what are the differences between players?' and Shea lays out the answer in graphic detail.
