You do not need to switch to this deck. Inside the book there are great ideas that you can combine with your own stack, for example Siamese stack tricks. You can even go from Woodys deck to Mnemonica and viceversa, and best of all, forget about faro shuffle. You don't need it at all, as you do in mnemonica, or you can use antifaro shuffle.

But we can do minor corrections when required and do it right most of the time. (Eg the other day, I opened a new deck of Superior playing cards and straight away did 8 out faros to take it back to original order)

Between the two, probably TOOO. But if this is someone's first time ever with a mem deck, I'd point them to Mnemonica and also the works of Simon Aronson first.

I would send them to Simon Aronson's website to download his introduction to memorized deck magic 'Memories Are Made of This' (It's free!).

http://www.simonaronson.com/Memories%20A......This.pdf

As I mentioned elsewhere in a different thread the other day, it's an excellent overview of the general concept, and basic principles and possibilities of memorized deck magic.

In books terms, I would recommend Bound to Please and/or Mnemonica as your first port of call.
