Please refer to the first sentence in the abstract. That is the thesis.

I beg to differ on this one. If the goal is not money, but rather broadcasting the message to the masses, then giving away the information is the way to go. If it absolutely must be in written form and not on youtube (ironic, as the CTE supporters always said you can't learn CTE in a 2D book), then post it as a Dr. Dave or Tor Lowry kind of thing, in writing, downloadable. Why spend $40,000 when the information can be produced for practically free and disseminated on the web? If Stan wants this information to survive through future generations I think having it all out there on the web is a better bet than sitting on some dark shelf collecting dust.

It sounds like there are some very serious flaws in regards to the mental and physical portions of this manual.
The operative definition of a "Sea Story" is a story that begins with the phrase, "Now, this is NO shit."

Whenever I lied to my Mom, I always started with, "Now Mom, this is the truth."

Maybe the two DVD's weren't the truth.
More than a decade ago, the hooligans argued the system was simple.
Some argued there were only 3 shots in pool. Hey, Efren said it too, they said.
Two DVD's and countless videos later, it still needs a book to be fully explained .

"It's about getting the Truth out about CTE aiming."

I wonder if this statement is a rather clandestine way of admitting that everything up to "The Book" hasn't been.

It's called center to edge but one of the shills said you should not use the center of the ball to aim.

I guess so. But with 100+ videos already available, I just don't see the another video series being anything much different than what's already out there. The book, however, is something new, something different, something that is supposed to be "the greatest contribution" ever to the pool world.

But, but, but what if all that early stuff really wasn't "THE TRUTH?"

CTE is a kind of scam, but not the bad kind. The bad kind would be if Stan knowingly misled his customers for craven profit. I'm sure Stan believes everything he says and his customers get what they want.

The "good scam" is the fanciful explanation(s) for how the system works - it's not a bad scam because it's innocent (he believes it) and it's what his customers want and works best for them.

whats funny is why would somebody go an copy an paste some stupid crap like that in a pool forum. If you really dont know what it means when somebody says the edge of the ball, you sure in the hell shouldnt be posting .
I think cte would be impossible for some ....know edges.

I may not believe everything Stan says about his system, but I assure you nothing about this man seems like a scam to me. I think your crossing the line a little here.
Attaching scam to his name in anyway is just wrong.
