I like pictures , but not that much , lol ! I've used it in the past . I have the 2011 and sure don't remember it costing that much ? I also remember the NEC being somewhere around $ 50.00 too . McGraw hill , sells an illustrated handbook that's 80 something . I think the price is the same for the pdf download , so they have you over a barrel Any way you slice it .

I went to the nfpa distribution in avon, ma. And paid 93.00 for the sift cover NEC with no tabs. Seems higher than last cycle.
