Calling all ascended computer masters: why won't Foxit open my PDFs?

So, Foxit Reader has been touted as a really fast replacement for Adobe Reader, and for the files it does open, I've found this to be the case.
However, I've some PDFs Foxit just refuses to open. Every time I try, I get this error: "There was an error opening this document. This file is damaged and could not be repaired."
But...trying to open it with Adobe Reader poses no problem whatsoever. What gives?
Here is an example.
[30+ MB pdf]
(For what it's worth: I do buy these books too; I've quite a collection. But nothing beats Ctrl+F for finding something in the middle of a game.)
