If your goal is to win the World Series of Poker next year but you've never played a big limit game in your life, don't expect to achieve that simply by virtue of having read this book. Let's get real here. While your authors are terrific teachers (who are now learning to walk on water) they haven't quite mastered it yet.
Instead of indulging your fantasies, start with a challenging but reachable goal. Once you make it, you can set the next, more difficult, goal. Perhaps you want to set a goal of playing in one or two inexpensive tournaments per week, or playing in satellites that are usually part of the format surrounding major tournaments. If you don't do well there, keep trying. But save your money. You're probably not ready yet to invest big bucks in entry fees to major events.
