Nathan's book has filled a lot of gaps that Verneer left IMO. It is a lot easier to read and follow step by step.
In my review I was referring a lot to his first book "Crushing the Microstakes" , a book unique on its own. I loved how he structured the book and fashioned it to be friendly for the reader. And someone that came from micros background knew how to be much closer to micros players mindset.
Now if you just throw your eyes on 2 random pages of CTM and MSS you will think it is the same book.
I did not made that reference to Verneer to say that one book is better than the other. Verneers book has its good parts too. But I belive that for a player that wants to grind from 5NL to the stakes above, Nathan's book is the easier way .
Verneer's book is just a resume of his "Crushing the Micros" video series(Verneer has a video series "Crushing the Micros" too).
For Nathan its just the other way around.
