HASH(0xa13a8ed0) out of 5 stars I believe that this manual is better than The Gregg Reference Manual Oct. 30 2014

Format: Spiral-bound
I believe that this manual is better than The Gregg Reference Manual; I own both. It is much MUCH easier to navigate, and whenever I can't find something in the GRM, I always find it here. Also, HOW updates much more regularly.
