+rep, nice and oooh I like the colors :>
+1 for effort but too many colours. Headache material.

Use a single highlight font colour for most effective pop without visual/cognitive overload. (preferably blue or red ... pink and green and yellow and red and cyan .. really?)

But without colors it looks like a wall of text which is only good to make you bored.

needs more stars and unicorns throughout
rainbows and puppies too
Will see to it. Can't promise puppies though.

wouldn't be as bad if the font wasn't so huge. My grandma can read that font....from across the street.
Isn't that the idea behind a presentation?

Poweplay hype! (Page 3)

But wait a second... if control systems cost CC, why is it later written that, by increased control, control systems are fortified to generate more CC? Surely the control of the system, not the control system, is fortified to increase the CC-income from exploited systems?

Fortifying the control system doesn't increase the profits from exploited systems, but decreases the upkeep of the control system itself, resulting in overall increase of income.

UPD
There is a "control" powerplay action which refers to fortifying and undermining and there are "control systems", these terms are not connected beyond the fact that you can only fortify/undermine a control system and not an exploited system.

"Decreases upkeep" should replace "increases income" in the guide then, imho. Elseways, one could think the fortify bonus grows the more systems are within the control radius of the chosen control system (what is not the case if just the upkeep is decreased), leading potentially to wrong decisions.

Well distilled. +rep
And actually the layout of the material is quite good.
Now just work on making it much easier on the eye!
Otherwise, well done. :)

Volume 2 suggestion (after you've sorted the readability): some worked-through examples tracked through a week and illustrating the principles in Volume 1.
