Hi Olivia! Sorry for such a late response. We hope to update sometime soon, but have been overwhelmed by the pandemic. Hopefully we will be back and at releasing/updating Cypher products soon!

Your full-size preview doesn't work and the Quick Preview is too small to see. What are the types presented here?

Hi David,

Thank you for reaching out. We had uploaded an ePub version a while back to supplement the full PDF, and that looks to have interacted strangely with the previews. We’re going to fix that now.

The book presents the following Types (text from the book):

The Academic is someone who spends their life in intellectual learning. They can be a teacher, a re-searcher, or any other individual who focuses on knowledge for its own sake.

The Athlete is as close to the physical ideal as a per-son can get. They train continuously to be in peak condition and compete regularly against others.

The Investigator lives for the thrill of the hunt. Whether on the right side of the law or flouting it, these people stay in motion and look for new challenges.

The Occultist seeks evidence of any residual magic that still exists in the modern world. Their goal is to bring the arcane arts back into the light and learn how to make them work again....See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
