2015 NDS Commentary

2015 NDS Commentary

2015 NDS Commentary

I'm sure this question has been asked before but I noticed that the electronic copy of the 2015 NDS does not include the commentary, up until this point I've never felt the need to purchase the printed version since the electronic version is so much quicker to search through. Does anyone know if the printed version includes the commentary like the 2012 version. If so I guess I will break down and purchase the printed copy.

I believe the printed version does include the commentary as I noted the same thing and also thought that I guess I'll need to update my 2005 printed version.

RE: 2015 NDS Commentary

I just received a response back from the AWC that the printed version does include the commentary whereas the online version does not. Time to buy a nice new shiny NDS, besides my 2012 is getting a little dog eared and its time to retire it.

I did not know there was anything past the green NDS? :> (or the green steel book for that matter)
