First off, it's written without a specific game system in mind, which is interesting for books along these lines. If if you're new to running campaigns this might be a little challenging as it doesn't just hand you stats for characters, but I think an experienced gamer will love it, it leaves everything wide open for the keeper to adjust to their players levels, etc.
The stories themselves I found extremely interesting and pretty unique, there's 5 senarios in total and out of those I'd be willing to run 4 in a heart beat, the only one I'm leaving off my list relies heavily on biblical motifs which I wouldn't run myself because I'm not very religious and feel like I wouldn't do a good job at. (It's still a very intriguing senario, just not for me personally.)
The senarios varry in length, I'm confident 2 of them could be completed in a single session, the rest would probably fit better over multiple sessions but none are terribly lengthy.
The only thing I find disappointing about this book is that I'm a huge fan of visual aids in my campaigns, handouts for the players, interesting pictures etc. and there's very little along those lines in here. I think that's a direct result of price since i believe it was originally a kickstarter campaign, but really that's a small complaint and personally biased. Overall, this is pretty good, and I'm actually really excited to introduce my players to the fisher of men. ;)
