I'll start off by saying that I'm biased because i did some of the art in this book.
When I was offered the opportunity I got to read the book prior to release and it's really cool!
I was happy to get involved.
First off cypher system is ridiculously easy for the GM's. a good description and a difficulty on a scale of 1 - 10; yer done. That is the most awesome design decision ever.
So the bulk of the work is flavor.
There's a wide range of characters and the referencing to specific creatures, conditions and locations is well documented in the margins like you would expect from a Monte Cook Games product.
My favorite bit; ordinary town folk that get screwed over by random tech and just have to live it.
Definitely grab it!
