Lets get a few things out of the way:
This is an old White Wolf book, so the index, while being there, is not as helpful as I would like. Any 'See Page XX' references, if they give numbers, are largely wrong, or are literally "See Page XX". Cross referencing is not a strong suit of old White Wolf books.
That said, its an Old White Wolf book, and I can't really ding the book for that, as I knew that going in.
The art isn't complete crap (in fact, its just some photography for the most part, and decent photography at that).
My real criticisms of the book is the layout. If you are going through the first time to create your character, the layout is actually pretty sane, but if you just need a quick reference, its tedious to keep jumping around the character creation chapter.
If you do classic WoD larping, you can't pass this up, and at the current price, why would you?
