As such each part is very well written and thought out but unfortunately the writer tries to do too much within this one product.
I hate to say it but this one occasion when the good old fasioned multiple book boxed set would be handy.
To top it all a few other products are really needed to help round this setting out fully, especially for newbie DM's, the complicated environment will be difficult to play out.
All in all this is a great book if your campaign is looking for something different, however, it needs an experineced DM with plenty of time to flesh out the myriad of ideas contaoned within.
Up there with Faith and Avaters as one of TSR's more thought provoking supplements.
