Eat Rich Live Long not accurate on reference for ApoB/ApoA1 ratio #1

I looked up Eat Rich and Live Long reference on
 p 262 and 263. Ridker et.al.  July 2005

Eat Rich Live Long: "In this study... the ApoB/ApoA1 ratio put in a great performance, trumping ApoB alone.   Interestingly, the total (cholesterol?) ratio put in a great performance, trumping ApoB alone...the total (cholesterol?)/HDL ratio did even better"
The authors, Cummings & Gerber seem to have mischaracterized the conclusion above: "Non-HDLc and the ratio of total cholesterol to HDLc were as good or better than apoB."
