I thought that he got that ability because of the book. When he doesn't have the book he is completely useless, he never tried to do any fancy things when not in power of the book. Is there some source that can clarify wether or not Rider has any connection with the book?
Also, didn't Shinji say that, since he can't use magic, he is like any other person out there when he was trying o convince Shirou to side with him?

Since he can only use magic with the help of the book (he has NO magic circuit, so I don't care what you say, he can't cast magic without it). Shinji could only beat someone if he had a bow on him, nuff said.
No, I think differently. I think Shinji's dangerous in that he would be the first to pull a knife or, even worst, a gun into a fair fight after being cornered. He's so patetic that things like those go without saying, so it's either that you're in total control of the fight and, thus, counter any attempt by him to cheat his way into victory (altough he would trashtalk for like an hour giving you plenty of time to counter anyways ) or you'll be in certain danger of losing the fight.
