It is unuseable and most of the pages are not readable! This is actually just trash with a few pages in between.

The book itself is possibly one of the best published works for shadowrun so try to get it from somewhere else, but beware the prizes...

This rating is solely about the quality of the PDF.

Some of the other PDFs of the old Shadowrun product line,
have been remastered properly, with high quality images and text.

This one has not.
It has grainy images, which are either too dark, or too bright,
and text which pixelates to an extreme degree if you zoom in,
which makes reading very hard.

Aside from the Cover image, which looks even worse than the rest of the PDF,
the rest of the book is in black and white,
even parts that are in colour in the original version. (Namely the player supplements)

A scanned version of this book, which I saw in PDF-form, was of a higher quality than this professionally sold one.

I would highly suggest to remaster the PDF of this book,
since it is one of the most well-liked books in the product-line,
and since it is one of the hardest Shadowrun books to get.

Until that time I can not recommend anyone paying money for this PDF.

This was surprisingly one of the best sourcebooks I've read in many years. Long have I been interested in Insect Spirits and the Brotherhood especially through books like 2XS and Burning Bright but I'd never read anything deep about the organization itself.

While the book truly is a gem of information, even if outdated, it's true glory is in the way it is written. Instead of the "standard" shadow talk and shadowland/jack-point format sourcebooks of this system usually make use of this book (aside from the adventure itself) is presented as a data dump of emails between two journalists slowly unraveling the true nature of the Universal Brotherhood. It is extremely well written.

Buy it for nothing nothing other then to read a great piece of fiction.
