4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Phil on August 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
Let's clarify something first: yes this book is available for free on the USG website.

So why bother buying it? Well it's not intended as a quick turorial that can be read on a computer screen, it's more a comprehensive manual about everything-drywall. With 500+ pages, it just deserve to be read on a properly printed and bounded book. 20$ is the price of comfort and it's well worth it.

What about the content? Like I said in the title: Great book with up to date material!
