Bill,

I know it is hard to believe that this Edition is Thinner!

I spoke with Mike Caldwell at AITC and he was looking at the new book with 475 or so pages!!!

The 4th edition, which I worked on when I was the Technical Director for AITC was nearly 1000 pages.

FYI, they have removed many of the AITC Standards that become outdated almost as soon as the book is published. Most of the AITC Standards are now available as free downloads at AITC's website.

Have you ever seen a later edition that was NOT thicker? "Revised and
Expanded," eh?

Actually there is a fifth edition out now. It looks much thicker.
