You have read it?
I've seen the video he put out.
The one where he put his own name on someone else's effect, and then boasted his deed and his ignorance, "I don't know who invented it, I don't care who invented it."
That alone was enough to realize that he desired to be known as a really despicable person. Not a person I would trust, no matter what the topic is. Least of all anything regarding work.
There is nothing by this person that belongs on the professional magician's bookshelf. From his video, his business approach is easily summed up as "Steal it, put your own name on it and boast about it."
