There are many eBooks in Deus Ex, but 29 of them are of special importance.
These so called "Hugh Darrow eBooks" will not only give you 200 experience
points for reading them, thus granting you a nice bonus of 5800 points - should
you find every single one - but finding them all during one playthrough also
unlocks the "Doctorate" Trophy/Achievement.  This small guide lists every single
Hugh Darrow eBook's location, along with directions leading to them.  Good luck!

follow the corresponding section of the walkthrough, which can be found here:

           out and be careful you're not seen by any other guards.  Facing the

           reach a fairly large hall.  Search around for a vent cover and use
           Jump Enhancement to get to it, or alternatively Strength Enhancement
           to move the metal crates in the other small room to line up under
           the vent.  But that's not all.  The vent leads to a deep shaft and
           you *must* have the Icarus Landing System in order to survive the
           fall - there simply is no other way to get this eBook, which lies
           down beneath.
