    When I ordered mine a while back, I received the larger book. My mother ordered it some time after I received mine, and she received the smaller book. I was a little disappointed for her, but it didn't cost anything, so I guess it's ok!

    Yep, I confirmed that there is a bigger book. AAA has 'em. Same name. Seems to have more content too. Altho I don't recall it looking like the image at the begging of the thread... hmmm...

    Congratulations advrider comrades, you've been credited at dealnews.com.

    Searching dealnews for all those things I can't live without, I came across this:

    Lent my free book out, and never got it back. So, I looked this thread back up and applied for a new one, but I notice the ap says you will be sent a "Brochure". I sure hope its the original book still, the first one was well used by us.
