For example, I have known a statesman that used all his political strategies and tactics based on a certain book (self help). One can understand the reason of every move he makes and even predict the next tactic because he knows the content of the book by heart. The book's genre is self help and if I'm not mistaken it is a fiction book.

I don't know if "living proof" is the exact term. I doubt it.

    "Living proof" is the closest that I can come up with. "He is living proof that the strategies described in the book do in fact work." – vasantn May 5 '16 at 3:52

someone or something that is a perfect representative or example of a quality, idea, etc.
"She's the embodiment of all our hopes."

"He's the embodiment of everything said in that book"

Such a person can be called an embodier.
