While you can down load labels and MSDS for free the Blue Book does have it's advantages. I don't buy one each year, but I do buy it every other year and keep the older Blue books to look up old labels. I use the Internet more than Blue Book but it is nice to have when you need it.

BTW the CD is even better.

I haven't touched the books in years other than to dust them. Darn labels change too fast.

With Lap Top now having 60 gigs of hard drive, I down load all Labels and MSDS of products that I use or have even a slight interest in. I keep my Lap top with me at all times I am working.

But When I carried a Blue Book instead of a Lap top, I highlighted label mix rates etc for even faster reference.

I asked about this book several months ago but received only 2 or so replies. My main concern is how the information is presented.
I'd love to plonk down my hard earned $150.xx but not sight-unseen. You'd think Greenbook would post a sample page or 3 in pdf.
