A pulp science-fiction book focused on the adventures of an itinerant meat trader from the settlement of Junktown, the book contains insight into trade with the aim of assisting those bartering after the Great War. Anyone who reads it will surely benefit from the contents. By 2287, the book has been remade, albeit in a cruder, more hand-drawn, format, detailing many illegitimate, but possibly necessary, means of conducting business in areas like the Commonwealth.[Non-game 1]

The quest starts with Doc Morbid in Junktown, goes through Iguana Bob Frazier in the Hub, and ends with the aforementioned blackmail back in Junktown. Wherein the Vault Dweller discovered that Doc Morbid had been supplying pieces of human meat that were being sold as iguana bits.
