The book is spiral bound. I think it will last quite a while, as my son and I use these on a regular basis and have not had any page issues so far. The books take a beating and are holding up. I used to collect error, damaged and variety coins back in the 1970's and this book is a welcome change.
The only CON is the princing. I have read a few comments on the web about the pricing of coins is NOT correct in Volume I and II. Apparently there was an issue with the person who was in charge of making the price changes. They used a template on most pages and either quit or left the company before finishing the price updates. Some of the pricing is WAY low. There is NO WAY your going to be able to find a coin at the prices suggested in most cases. Once that is corrected in future Volumes, this book will be hard to beat.
The hints and tips are very helpful, the taste of history that is included is very helpful, and the up close photos truly help me to understand what I'm looking for.
The way the book is arranged make my searches easier and allow me to locate and understand everything with no problem. I actually find myself reading the book and not just referencing-it makes me want to learn more than just the specific item I was looking up.
I highly recommend volume 1 and 2 as the beginning to anyone starting out.
