Feeling very inadequate at this point.
Probably need to check my maths again.

make sure you assign the right values to each letter, make sure you're measuring the gaps between in the same way that the first and last sample show you.
Add and subtract until you've got an answer.

Nope. Been stuck with this for one month now. I just give up. I cannot do this. The book will find it's place on my shelf until I become an old, 80yr old man that has seen it all and knows how to solve this. This is way too hard. Does not make any sense. Tried everything. Everyday, for 30 days straight I took around 1 hour everyday to try and solve this puzzle, and I just can't. I asked around 15 people to help me solve this, they tried really hard, they did not get it. It is just impossible for me.

So, write down the english alphabet on a paper. Now give the numbers to the letters, a=1, b=2.... now write the key 17 word on the top of the page and word from key 18 on the bottom of the page. Now you look at the first letter on the top , that is the first letter of key 17, and take the paper where you wrote your alphabet, now take a look what happens when you start counting from the first letter of the key 17 to the first letter of the key 18. It might be not the acctual difference your brain is used to, but this set the rules. So this is now your rule. Make the same with the last letters in key 17 and key 18, so you will understand what the number -14 means. Make that for all 8 letters now and there you have it. Obviously it is a number you are searching for, check the bottom of the page - add them.

You appear to have not worked out how to do spoiler tags.

I tried that and still confused by it

Been at it a while,now still don't get it

I get A-S = difference of 18 -1
I get R-C difference of 15 +1

Is this right if not I'm lost

Count the letters between. If it's going backwards, it's negative
